Roll-A-Rack accepting beta testers for new solar racking system – Solar Power World


Solar racking manufacturer Roll-A-Rack is seeking 10 developers or installers to test its patent-pending flat-roof commercial or ground-mount ballasted solar-panel racking system.

“Developers and solar installers looking for cost-saving opportunities should consider participating in the Roll-A-Rack beta testing program,” said Don Scipione, president, Roll-A-Rack. “The beta testing program will help further refine our product and help make Roll-A-Rack an even faster, lower-cost solar racking solution.”

Following recent funding from the U.S. Department of Energy Solar Energy Technologies Office for Roll-A-Rack development, parent company Acme Express is ready to begin beta testing. The Roll-A-Rack system is single-component, unlike multi-component racking systems, which require pre-ordering, shipping, inventorying, transporting to an install site and labor-intensive assembly.

Like seamless rain gutters, which are formed and cut to length on-site with portable roll-form machines, Roll-A-Rack produces custom solar racking on-site and on-demand, with the intention of reducing labor and material costs.

Beta testers of Roll-A-Rack will help the company refine its manufacturing and installation processes. Beta testers will receive:

  • Early access to cost-saving technology with minimal risk
  • 100 kW of racking free
  • Racks roll-formed on the project site by Roll-A-Rack at no cost
  • Wind uplift analysis to determine ballast requirements
  • Staff training
  • A case study, which can be used for marketing
