The globally active solar mounting system manufacturer Schletter Group is presenting its latest products and solutions at RE+ 2022 in
Anaheim, California. One of the highlights: the new 1P (one portrait) tracking system, which is being exhibited for the first time in North America. The GMax open-area system and the latest flat and pitched roof systems from the high-quality German manufacturer will also be shown at the trade show.
“Fewer kilos of mounting material for every square meter of surface covered yet with the same or better load- bearing capacity – this is a common thread running through our product development,” emphasized Tilman Elsner, Senior VP Engineering North America & Deputy Head Global Engineering. “With our new 1P tracking system in particular, we have taken another massive step forward in terms of the ratio of material to power.”
In this way, the Schletter developers have optimized the reliable Schletter Tracker, which has been very successful in the market, specifically for easy configuration with ultra-large-format modules. The compact “1P” tracker system is optimized for configuration with on vertical-format module. It uses far less material per kilowatt of power and is much lighter than comparable models on the market. “This is a very crucial point at the moment, especially in view of the high cost of steel, logistics and transport,” explains Elsner.
