Yes! Solar debuts solar module racking system

Yes! Solar, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Solar Power, Inc., has introduced a new solar module racking system that will be the backbone of its Yes! Mosaic residential photovoltaic (PV) solar home energy systems. These systems are sized to the precise electrical energy requirements of the homeowner.

The proprietary new racking system, ClickRack, uses a new low-profile mounting system that claims to dramatically reduce installation times while providing an extremely secure connection and aesthetically superior finish, regardless of roof style or architectural requirements. The racking system streamlines the installation process via its simple fixed mounting bracket and articulating click-mount assembly. Once the mounting brackets are attached to the roof, Yes! Energy Series PV modules are simply clicked into place.

The unique mounting system and PV modules do not require traditional wiring assemblies; instead electrical connections are achieved through the modules themselves. Similarly, ClickRack's self-grounding feature eliminates another traditional installation step and the materials needed to electrically ground modules. The net benefit of the ClickRack mounting system is a much faster, safer and more secure, low-profile installation, said the company.

The mounting system is also easy to disassemble in the event of a remodel or re-roofing project. The modules simply snap out of their brackets. Unlike other mounting systems, any single module in an array can be removed without the need to remove any adjacent modules.

The mounting system is also fire-code friendly, helping to streamline the permitting process, said the company. The residential energy systems with ClickRack will be available in the first quarter of 2009.
