Choosing the right solar racking for your project: 

Horizontal Tracker

A tracker can be a powerful tool for a solar project by significantly increasing the energy produced without having to increase the Project's size. Trabant Solar's trackers can produce up to 35% more energy over traditional fixed ground-mount racking solutions, which is even higher than the energy gain of the leading competitor's tracker. 

Fixed Ground-Mount

Fixed ground-mount racking system has been the industry standard for the last decade. Its' simple installation and minimal O&M requirements make it a favorite for most project developers. 

Trabant Solar has taken its' simplistic view and incorporated it into the fixed-ground mount racking system with a focus on an easy and fast installation.

*The graph above is a comparison between the tracker and fixed ground-mount racking using 275W 72 cell modules (multicrystalline) with a nameplate rating of 6.6kW (DC) for the tracker and fixed ground-mount racking. The graph is only for illustration purposes. Actual performance will vary. 

How to choose the right racking solution

There are several advantages and disadvantages for both the tracker and the fixed ground-mount models. Typically, the questions of which racking solution is better cannot be answered without analyzing the cost, PPA price, and solar radiation of a specific solar project. The return on investment and levelized cost of electricity (LCOE) for a solar project does not unilaterally depend on the cost of the solar project, but rather on the combination of the three aforementioned factors. We have the ability and expertise to assist project developers on these factors to help them arrive at the lowest levelized cost of electricity (LCOE) for a specific project in regards to the racking choice. 

Choosing the right Foundation for your Project: 

Ballast Foundation

Trabant Solar's non-invasive Ballast Foundation option allows the solar project to be build without having to undergo extensive geo-technical analysis and grading. Instead, the Ballast Foundation is placed on the ground in the desired location in the field; after which the tracker is assembled and the Ballast Foundation is covered with fill material of gravel, sand or an equivalent. 

The use of the Ballast Foundation will result in a faster and easier installation process. It also decreases the environmental impact of a solar project by not destroying the top soil through grading. 

Ramming Posts

The classic choice that has proven to be a reliable and steady choice for the last few years. This foundation option is available for all of the tracker models and the fixed ground-mount models.
