ROLL-A-RACK GUTTER-LIKE RACKING SYSTEM COLLECTS RAINWATER FALLING ON SOLAR ARRAYS

·2 min read

In-built erosion control reduces land requirements by half

CLEVELAND, July 18, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- Roll-A-Rack has developed a gutter-like solar racking system that captures rain falling on solar panels. Current racking systems require a large distance between rows of panels to grow vegetation to prevents erosion. The compact Roll-A-Rack has only eleven inches between rows of panels and requires half the land to produce the same amount of energy. Harvested water can also be used for irrigation.

The Roll-A-Rack rain harvesting solution will be presented as a technical poster "Collecting Rainwater Falling on Solar Arrays" at RE+ 2022, North America's largest renewable energy event, Sept. 17-22, 2022, in Anaheim, Calif. Roll-A-Rack president Don Scipione will present an invited paper "Stormwater Management for Solar Arrays" at the Ohio Department of Natural Resources 2022 Ohio Statewide Floodplain Management Conference, Aug. 24-25, in Columbus, Ohio.

Roll-A-Rack is seeking developers and solar installers to help commercialize the installation processes. For more information about Roll-A-Rack or becoming a beta tester, visit roll-a-rack.com, email beta@roll-a-rack.com., or download the informational flyer.

Roll-A-Rack's development research is funded in part by a Small Business Innovation Research grant from the U.S. Department of Energy Solar Energy Technologies Office.
