Metal roofing solar attachment technology provider S-5! is presenting its new solar solution for metal roofs this week at Intersolar North America in Long Beach, Calif., such as the PVKONCEAL module skirt. Paired with the PVKIT solar solution, the module skirt conceals the lower edge of the solar PV array, protecting all mechanical and electrical components underneath, as well as creating an attractive, clean finished look.
PVKONCEAL also helps to minimize the intrusion of small animals, debris and unwanted objects under the solar array. S-5!’s team including Director of Solar Business, Mark Gies, will be on-hand to explain the features and benefits of this new offering.
Gies has 30 years of industry experience with a focus on solar ranging from product development, operations, installation, compliance, codes and standards to sales and business development. He is the vice-chair of the Solar Energy Industry Association’s (SEIA) Mounting System Manufacturers Committee, a member of the Structural Engineers Association of California’s (SEAOC) PV Committee, and a founding member of UL 2703’s Standard Technical Panel. Gies is a regular presenter for S-5!, including the company’s certified AIA and NABCEP webinar series and has presented at multiple solar events both individually and as a panel member.
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.
