AGT selects AET ground mount system for 4.7-MW project in Florida

Is the lagging solar market in Florida ready to pick things up? Florida Solar Energy Industries Association’s (FlaSEIA) Executive Director Mike Antheil thinks so. “Dropping prices on PV and balance of system components, combined with a general population who is energized about solar projects, Florida is ready to live up to its potential as the third largest solar opportunity market in the country,” he said.

Here’s a good start: AGT, a leading commercial solar contractor in Florida, selected Applied Energy Technologies’ Rayport-G ECO ground mount solar racking system for a 4.7-MW project in Fort Lauderdale. SolarWorld’s 320W Sunmodules and GE’s inverters were selected for the project.

“We are proud to have met AGT’s high standards and join the solar movement in Florida,” said Aaron Faust, VP of Business Development at AET. “AGT recognized the value in our racking solutions and services through an extensive and detailed vetting process. We provide a combination of the highest quality and most cost-competitive racking systems on the market to deliver bankable solutions for utility-scale solar projects across the U.S.”

AET’s Rayport-G ECO ground mount system is strong and durable having been engineered to withstand the most challenging environmental conditions, as well as light and compact allowing for high shipping density, significantly reduced freight costs and easier handling on the job site. The Rayport-G ECO is UL listed and wind tunnel tested.

“AGT has a strong presence in Florida and we anticipate the Florida market to continue to grow,” said Clint Sockman, VP of AGT. “It’s important that we build strategic relationships with a racking supplier that we can rely on, and that’s what we found in AET for this project.”

AET ships its products from multiple locations, with established distribution centers in California, Indiana, Virginia, Texas, Arizona, and Mississippi, giving nationwide coverage to get products to its customers fast.

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.
