Olsen Visual was looking to reduce their electricity bill, take advantage of the available tax credits and take steps to being a more sustainable business. The challenge was to design a solar system without roof penetration using the available space.
We custom designed a PV system with UniRac Ballast Non-Penetrating Racking to hold 276 Mitsubishi Solar Panels, using half of the roof space.
The roof penetration is sealed with ChemLink, M-1, and ChemCurb combination epoxy based sealant for 50 year life and thermal expansion & contraction.The conduit blocks are PVC reinforced 1000 lb. capacity for maximum life expectancy.
he inter-row wire management consists of Schedule 80 PVC affixed with S-5 and/or Beam Clamps. The use of PVC eliminates the need for additional grounding.
Olsen Visual was extremely happy with the installation and time-frame of the project. They reduced their electricity bill by 50% and were able to use all tax credits and incentives made available in California.
