Tracking systems may be claiming a larger portion of the utility-scale solar market in the United States, but there appears to still be a large market for fixed-tilt systems.
Today GameChange Solar announced that it has secured orders from three leading engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) contractors for pile-driven, fixed-tilt racking systems to supply 158 MW of PV projects in the state of North Carolina.
These orders for its Max-Span Post System are for both crystalline silicon and thin-film PV modules, and GameChange Solar cites the companys rapid turnaround time for delivering projects as a major factor in its success.
GameChange claims the industrys longest spans and fewest foundations, with as few as 240 per megawatt. It also states that its post, beam and brace design has the industrys lowest part count and fastest assembly.
