      PV modules produced by Evergreen Solar are distinctive in their appearance because they incorporate a proprietary crystalline silicon technology known as String Ribbon. In the String Ribbon technique, two high-temperature strings are pulled vertically through a shallow silicon melt, and the molten silicon spans and freezes between the strings. The process is continuous: long strings are unwound from spools; the melt is replenished; and the silicon ribbon is cut to length for further processing, without interrupting growth.
    • Evergreen ES-A modules utilize three parallel strings of 38 cells in series giving an 18-volt peak power voltage which allows fewer strings in grid-tie systems and also provides optimum voltage for battery charging with conventional as well as MPPT charge controllers. They have Multi-Contact MC4 locking connectors, PV Wire, and black anodized frames. Made in USA.
    • Evergreen modules are ETL listed to UL 1703 for U.S. and Canada. Modules have a 10-year 90% power warranty, 25-year 80% power warranty.

        3 Responses to SOLAR MANUFACTURERS list

        1. Solar manufacturers offers various foundation options for the solar mounting systems including concrete piers, driven post, screw anchors and helical piles. All these options can work well; the developers and project engineers on the project must select the foundation that most efficiently works on the project in terms of design, engineering and economics. This is where experience in all types of foundation options becomes a key component in the overall design of the solar mounting system. Here are the benefits of using driven post as foundation for ground mount solar project.

          Engineered solution for solar mounting systems:
          Driven posts are a complete engineering solution. The quality is consistent from the first pile to the last and is tested prior to installation. Shape is maintained during installation. They do not bulge in soft soil conditions and are typically not susceptible to damage from the installation of subsequent piles. The pile driving process for solar mounting systems can be easily modeled prior to ground mount solar installation to determine adequate and economic equipment selection.

          Economical solution for PV mounting systems:
          Driven posts are usually the most cost effective foundation solution for ground mount solar. Pile capacity is easily verified by either static or dynamic pile testing. As an additional benefit, driven piles often gain capacity after installation.

          Flexibility to mount solar structures:
          Driven piles are installed to accommodate compression, tension or lateral loads. Piles can be selected to meet the specific needs of the solar structures , site conditions and budget.

          Trustworthy and Available:
          Pile driving equipment and installation methods are time-tested and well proven. Advances in materials, equipment, methods, and testing continually combine to improve the efficiency of driven post at solar panel installation .

          Miscellaneous benefits of post driving for solar Racking systems:
          Pile driving is relatively easy in many soils. Since the soil at the toe is in a compacted condition for displacement piles, end bearing can often carry a substantial load. Driven piles require no curing time and can be driven in natural sequence rather than skipping alternate piles, thus minimizing the moving of the equipment and speeding installation.

          Environmentally Friendly:
          Driven pile installations usually produce no spoils for removal and therefore no exposure to, or costly disposal of, potentially hazardous or contaminated materials. The site is left clean and ready for the next construction activity.

        2. Great answer. I agree that Posts, Piles and Anchors are the way to go.

          My company, Mojave Industrial Tools, manufacturers COMPACT PILE DRIVERS just for the Solar Industry to use on their driven posts, screw anchors and helical piles. Just as the word “Compact” indicates the equipment is more manageable to use but yet has the Big power that is needed.

          We have Track Units as well as Attachments for Skid steers, Backhoes and Excavators, to fit every need; i.e. size of project, type of soil, foundation anchors used, and mobility needed. We also have techniques to install posts & piles in difficult rocky soil and have tooling for Hard Rock.

          Many EPSs and installers have asked us to develop a tool that installs IBeams/posts/piles with vibratory methods so no damage is done to the top of the post/piles, and this is now standard.

          I would be happy to discuss this further with anyone needing Installation Equipment for their Solar Projects.
