Schletter Canada has delivered the solar mounting system for the entry of Team Canada in the Solar Decathlon, which is currently going on in Washington D.C.
The entry of Team Canada, which is known as “Turtle” or the Technology Residence, Traditional Living (TRTL), is a cooperation of Team Canada and Canadian First Nation and has planned to construct a sustainable habitat, which would meet the First Nation people’s artistic living needs.
The company’s VP of engineering has commented that Schletter has created a product meant for housing the flush mount systems that has been employed on this design with some different necessities. He added that owing to the exceptional roof design for attaining a deep outcropping, a round look and elevated snow loads experienced by Canada, the company has partnered with Team Canada for manufacturing a system, which met both function and structure. Finally, the company is positive about the structural reliability of the end product and its esthetics.
SkyFire’s David Vonesch has stated that Schletter has completed the groundwork of the design for rack building that fits the project. Calgary-based SkyFire and the dedicated students of Team Canada have set up the whole PV system and the micro inverters on every panel have reached an exceptional factor to optimize the production of module energy and agreed for many module angles in a system. The round roofline of the building has been made by this exclusive design.
