ROSEVILLE, CA--(Marketwired - April 05, 2017) - Sunworks, Inc. (NASDAQ: SUNW), a leading provider of solar power solutions, announced today its "Powered by" initiative, a rigorous testing program used for approving products for customer installations. Partner products that meet the solar company's exhaustive qualifications earn the coveted "Powered by" logo, a co-branded symbol for reliability and performance.
Earning the Sunworks "Powered by" logo requires a product to undergo an exhaustive approval process that entails field trials, performance analysis, and reliability studies. Sunworks coordinates its program with manufacturers to ensure that their customers receive the highest level of quality possible. In addition, manufacturers gain valuable insight and research for their products using real world applications.
Rapid Rack, a Sunworks subsidiary, is one such product line that has recently earned the "Powered by" title after undergoing a battery of in-the-field performance testing. This innovative, clamp-free racking system is designed to prevent panel damage and production loss in solar systems.
Previous methods for securing panels require over-torqued clamping. When exposed to excessive heat, thermal expansion takes place, affecting the panel's efficiency. In traditional solar systems, it results in a loss of valuable kilowatt hours and ultimately, loss of savings for customers. Rapid Rack utilizes insertion rail technology, allowing for thermal expansion without creating stress points on the panels. It uses 28% fewer parts than traditional methods and includes a fully integrated, wire management tray that's built with galvanized components for enhanced protection.
Robert Lopez, Sunworks Vice President of Procurement said, "Like all products that must meet our Powered by criteria, Rapid Rack has demonstrated exceptional quality in the field and ensures a significant ROI for our customers. The Powered by program is a result of in-depth reliability, maintenance, and performance studies that help to maximize solar production for our customers."
