TerraSmart has unveiled GLIDE, its latest ground screw-based racking design for utility-scale solar projects. GLIDE is infused with bifacial module compatibility allowing complete exposure of the module to maximize potential backside power yield.
Carrying forward TerraSmart’s ability to accommodate slope tolerances up to 36 percent, GLIDE was designed to improve install velocity with simplified connections, agile parts and a significant reduction in hardware. TerraSmart believes GLIDE can significantly reduce the price per watt of any project.
“With the expansion of solar in markets where labor is at a premium due to high demand or prevailing wage rates, velocity and ease of installation will become paramount,” says TerraSmart CEO Ryan Reid.
