The price of photovoltaic modules and the associated electrics has declined by 50% in recent years. Moreover, the related costs continue to drop. Even though this scenario holds potential for construction of large-scale photovoltaic plants, there is limitation in the price dropping space of the photovoltaic modules.
The mounting system, which has drawn less attention from people, will play a crucial role in further lowering the overall cost as the photovoltaic industry continues to seek effective ways of decreasing the overall construction costs of the photovoltaic plants. The key issue of investors is to lower cost and increase profitability although their focus remains on the initial cost to construct a photovoltaic plant. Moreover, photovoltaic plants must be pondered as long-term investment projects and operations, with a particular focus on the stability of the entire photovoltaic system for a 25-year operation.
VERSOLSOLAR, a provider of construction solutions for photovoltaic plants, collects the worldwide resources to conduct research, development and manufacturing of mounting systems to provide operation stability and profit on investment for photovoltaic plants for a period of 25 years. The company will demonstrate its highly reliable and low-cost VGPCF10D/E series solar ground mounting system at the Intersolar North America Exhibition being conducted from July 10 to July 12, 2012.
VERSOLSOLAR’s VGPCF10D/E series solar ground mounting system is capable of being utilized for concrete foundation and steel piles. All features are on the basis of improved structure design, simulated calculation and rigorous data analysis. Moreover, this system can be designed in a variety of setup based on the installation conditions. Each modularly designed component facilitates large-scale production to lower system costs. The company predicts that the mounting system and the commissioning of the photovoltaic power plant will be the area of focus to lower investment risks and overall cost and to achieve high return on investment.
