The United States Marine Corps Air Station (MCAS) located in Yuma, Arizona has installed a HatiCon Solar’s alTite penetrating flat roof mounting system for a solar carport project.
Independent Energy Solutions (IES), finished the construction of the solar carport project located at MCAS. The completion of this system has transformed a typical carport structure into an efficient source of renewable electricity with a 325-kW peak capacity.
The project utilized HatiCon Solar alTite penetrating flat roof mounting system with a 15 degree tilt used in conjunction with Hyundai 250-watt solar modules. The alTite system’s long spans reduced penetrations to the carport structure. Preassembled components and no on-site fabrication allowed for faster installation under the hot Arizona sun. To further accelerate the installation time a comprehensive service package was provided by HatiCon Solar. Services were comprised of optimized, site specific engineering solutions and full logistical support.
In regards to working with HatiCon Solar on this project Scott Helms, General Foreman for IES stated, “You guys have earned my trust. In the past I’ve been let down by other companies, but you (HatiCon Solar) get an ‘A’ for great service and responsiveness with no component shortages.”
