Applied Energy Technologies (AET), a preferred supplier of commercial and utility-scale racking systems and one of the top 10 solar racking companies in the United States, was selected by Microgrid Energy to supply its Rayport-B ECO roof ballast system for a 252 kW project in Joliet, Ill. The building on which the 784 panel project will be installed is nicknamed JOHA for Joliet Oncology-Hematology Associates.
“At AET, we ensure the highest standards are met in terms of product, workmanship, customer service and support for the duration of the project and beyond,” said Aaron Faust, VP of business development for AET. “To continually be selected by Microgrid Energy for projects really validates not only the quality and value of our products, but also the level of attention and detail that we approach each project with. It’s a privilege to work with Microgrid Energy again.”
AET customized its Rayport-B ECO with a 10 degree tilt for the JOHA project. The Rayport-B ECO is wind tunnel tested and UL 2703 listed.
“AET has consistently provided cost-competitive solutions that deliver on its promise of quality,” said Todd Velnosky, chief operating officer at Microgrid Energy LLC. “We have had a great experience working with them on previous projects, and we’ve been equally satisfied with their work here at JOHA.”
Have you checked out our YouTube page?
We have a ton video interviews and additional content on our YouTube page. Recently we debuted Power Forward! -- a collaboration with BayWa r.e. to discuss higher level industry topics as well as best practices / trends for running a solar business today.
Our longer running side project is The Pitch -- in which we have awkward discussions with solar manufacturers and suppliers about their new technology and ideas so that you don't have to. We've discusses everything from residential rail-less deck attaching and home solar financing to large-scale energy storage value stacking and utility-driven new home solar + storage microgrids.
We also post our Project of the Year announcements there! Interviews with this year's winners will be up starting the week of Nov. 8. Head there and subscribe today to stay on top of all this extra stuff.
