Storm Hardened Solar Racking & Tracking Solutions

Sustainable Energy Management Systems, LLC.
Innovation in Solar Racking

"Severe weather poses a threat to all power system infrastructure; however, there are advantages to using solar PV as a resilient power source, such as its distributed nature and no need for fuel. To fully benefit from these advantages, it is vital that solar arrays are designed and installed in a manner that gives them the greatest likelihood of surviving severe weather events and thus being able to produce power afterwards." - NREL 2020

Storm Hardened Solar Racking

SEMS products meet or exceed the standards outlined in reports published recently by FEMA, FEMP, Rocky Mountain Institute, and NREL. These reports call for improvements in the construction of PV Arrays. The Publications define design and construction standards necessary to achieve survivability of solar arrays when subject to severe weather events. One Critical area of improvement mentioned is the need for improvement in solar racking. Storm hardened solar racking and solar trackers increase the probability of PV array survival. Storm hardened design and construction minimize the risk of damage or total loss of a solar system due to storms.  Increases return on investment and life cycle of the solar array and reduce operation and maintenance costs/expenses(Planned and Unplanned). Developers, EPC, and Investors can realize a more bankable Levelized Cost of Energy(LCOE).

Utilitas Trac Series 

Utilitas Trac Series is a ground-mounted storm hardened single-axis solar tracker that was engineered using the optimal combination of steel and aluminum. This Series was developed for use in the Commercial and Utility-scale solar tracking markets. SEMS field-proven and patent-pending technologies are all incorporated into the Utilitas Trac Series making it a resilient, cost-effective, and efficient horizontal single-axis solar tracker. Lifetime value is optimized by reducing risks and maximizing energy yield. This helps project developers and asset owners realize the best performance from their projects.

Tilt Solar Tracker (TST) Series 

SEMS Tilt Solar Tracker (TST) Series is a ground-mounted storm hardened solar tracker designed to adjust to the sun's altitude throughout the day. This solar tracker is intended for use in higher latitudes of the earth where the sun's altitude varies significantly with the four seasons. They were developed for use in the Residential, Commercial, and Utility-scale solar racking markets. SEMS field-proven patent-pending technologies are incorporated into the TST Series making it resilient, cost-effective, and efficient. Lifetime value is optimized by reducing risks and maximizing energy yield that delivers a bankable Levelized Cost of Energy. This helps project developers and asset owners realize the best performance from their projects.

Resilience can be defined as the ability to anticipate, prepare for, and adapt to changing conditions and withstand, respond to, and recover rapidly from disruptions through adaptable and holistic planning and technical solutions- Hotchkiss 2016
