BCI Engineering sent word of its new ground-mount solar racking system, Full Tilt. Backed by decades of manufacturing and engineering experience, BCI says this new fixed-tilt system has fewer parts, versatile module loading and fastening methods, and manufacturer-direct pricing.
The Full Tilt system introduces a new type of panel rail, called the Longhorn. The Longhorn allows modules to effortlessly slide into strategically placed notches on the rail; giving the system the ability to self-align modules and greatly improve installation speed. Structurally independent tables are self-squaring, eliminating the need for adjustment and increasing compatibility with steep terrains.
Every facet of the Full Tilt system was thoughtfully engineered to maximize the speed and simplicity of installation. With several identical structural components and optimized beam cantilevers, this simple 6-part system ensures a speedy installation with no lost time sorting through parts. The rotatable rack provides installers the option to install modules in whichever position they prefer.
“Following a meticulous product development effort, we’re very excited to introduce Full Tilt and demonstrate how its innovative design will deliver time and cost savings value beyond what’s currently available” said Chris Bartley, VP Business Development of BCI. “By combining one of the world’s largest solar racking supply chains with a product designed by industry veterans specifically to address the unmet needs in this market segment, we’re able to consolidate two key elements of the value chain and create the optimal fixed tilt solution in terms of product quality and cost.”
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.
