Sollega supplied its FastRack ballasted mounting system for the installation of a 616.5 kW commercial rooftop solar array at Fremont Delta Products American Headquarters. Delta opened its doors to a gleaming new 180,000-squarefoot office building that executives say is among the greenest in the region.
“Our old building was just too small,” said M.S. Huang, president of Delta Products Corp. The new facility – which is mostly office space – can handle up to 500 workers, though about 200 currently work there.
Not only will this achievement rank Delta’s Facility as a Building precursor in renewable energy, but will also function to stabilize and increase the independence of their company’s energy needs.
The FastRack510 (FR510) was selected to mount a total of 2,464 DelSolar 250W modules. The one-piece FR510 requires no assembly, and it’s universal design allowed Rodda Electric to install the PV modules, with the same simple and intuitive installation procedure. The high array density of the FR510 enabled Delta Coporation to reach their production goals. The non-corrosive injection molded Ultramid material used to make the FastRacks was a perfect fit for this projects proximity to San Francisco Bay.
Rodda Electric, one of the North Californian leading commercial electrical contractors, was able to install the system at an average rate of 2 kW per person per hour. Rodda Electric offers a wide variety of electrical services, from design and installation to maintenance and technical services.
Sollega’s flexible wire-management system and 8” roof clearance made stringing modules easy. Delta’s HQ achieved a LEED Platinum rating. The building incorporates the most efficient energy systems, HVAC, lighting and air quality standards in the industry.
