PanelClaw delivers mounting and balance-of-system solutions to accelerate the adoption of photovoltaics worldwide. PanelClaw’s design philosophy emphasizes ease of installation and end-of-life decommissioning. The efficient low part count of each of their systems, and innovative use of factory pre-assembly, significantly reduces array construction time and cost.
PV systems have an expected lifetime of at least 20 years and periodic maintenance is essential. Arrays built with PanelClaw mounting systems are easy to maintain, significantly reducing maintenance expenses. All PanelClaw products go through extensive engineering analysis and modeling, followed by wind tunnel and infield testing, prior to being released commercially.
