Applied Energy Technologies (AET), a supplier of commercial and utility-scale racking systems, was selected to supply the racking for BayWa r.e.’s first three solar installations in the United States. The projects total 6.9 MW and are located in Selma, Newton Grove and Smithfield, N.C. AET is providing its Rayport- G ECO ground mount system for all three projects.
“We know a lot of consideration was taken in choosing the right solar racking provider for BayWa r.e.’s first U.S. solar installation,” said Aaron Faust, VP of Business Development for AET. “With a large-scale project like this, it is important to find the best possible value. We are proud to have been chosen by BayWa r.e.”
AET’s Rayport-G ECO is UL listed and is rapidly becoming an industry standard for developers and EPCs looking for a ground mount system that is easy to install, scalable and delivers a significant savings on total installed costs.
“AET’s Rayport-G ECO was a smart choice for these projects,” said Jam Attari, CEO at BayWa r.e. “AET had the best quality and ease of installation for the price. We have a great deal of confidence in the team at AET.”
AET’s Rayport-G ECO is strong and durable, having been engineered to withstand the most challenging environmental conditions, as well as being light and compact, allowing for high shipping density, low freight costs and easier handling on the job site.
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.
