Use-on-9_Sollega_CORE1_CommercialRooftopInstall

The Sollega/SMA system is officially UL3741 PVHCS certified. Sollega’s FR510 Polymer Ballasted Racking when installed with SMA Core1 inverters now meets rapid shutdown requirements without the need of module level power electronics or optimizers (MLPE). Expected savings of $.08-10/W and 1/3 the number of connections. Learn more at Sollega.com.


Paired Power | Booth #4144

Fast, flexible EV charging without the wait of interconnection

paired power


While conventional solar canopies can take years to install and grid connect, Paired Power is reducing their construction and utility costs with its new pop-up, solar, EV charging canopy, called PairTree. Suitable for multiple applications, it’s an excellent solution for temporary or emergency power, public, fleet, and workplace EV charging. PairTree installs in a day and delivers renewable power immediately. PairTree’s modular design is available in 5 kW units and uses 10 bifacial solar panels each. With EV charging as one of the primary use cases, the PairTree is designed to ensure continuous daily operations by regulating and optimizing EV charging loads to deliver up to 75 miles of daily range to an EV, well above the U.S. daily commuter national average of 37 miles. For greater resiliency and reliability, the PairTree also supports up to a 40 kWh LFP battery, extending the daily range delivered up to 230 miles. Learn more at pairedpower.com.

Mechatron Solar Inc. | Booth #4231

Check out the M18KD Dual Axis Tracker

Mechatron Solar

Mechatron Solar will be demonstrating a working model of its patented M18KD Dual Axis Tracker at Booth 4231 the 2022 RE+ solar trade show September 19-22 at the Anaheim Convention Center. The unique tracker supports 90 panels on a single mast, with the highest energy yield and smallest ground footprint in the industry. With a 15-foot tall solar panel table, the tracker is ideal for carports, wineries, and other constrained sites.

With bifacial solar panels, the M18KD tracker has demonstrated an energy yield boost ranging from 13% to 23%. Mechatron now produces a version of the M18KD that can withstand windspeeds of at least 135 mph.

Mechatron recently completed a Black & Veatch Bankability Report and is certified to the UL 3703 Tracker Standard. The company warranties 99.6% uptime performance, based on 90 MW of commercial, industrial, and utility-scale installations in Europe and North America over the past decade.

Xendee | Booth #4581

Xendee microgrid

Xendee takes microgrid and DER design from manual to automatic in minutes instead of months
Xendee develops software that cuts design costs by up to 90 percent for developing and operating microgrids, distributed energy resources, and EV fast-charging stations. Through managing the design and operation of the system their bankable decision-making software helps customers strengthen energy resilience, decarbonize assets, and confidently meet Scope 1 & 2 emissions goals and net-zero commitments while also targeting the fastest return on investment.

Xendee cuts through the uncertainty of conventional methods and creates an environment for rapidly developing advanced distributed energy projects even with multiple nodes like a military base or sites using a wide variety of energy technologies. Projects can also be optimized behind organizational goals like resiliency, cost savings or emission reduction and each optimization generates a report that can be used by CFO’s and engineers alike to make the right investment decisions at the right time.

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 discuss 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.
