With Modu-Rack, we let real-world applications dictate how to improve the design. Our solutions were 100% based on what installation professionals told us were their key problems in the business.

In response to the growing demand for quality solar equipment that can be installed both efficiently and effectively, DCE Solar debuted its new Modu-Rack I (Infinity) product at the firm’s headquarters in Huntersville, North Carolina. The innovative racking system’s key design feature is a modular footing and anchoring system that allows installation teams to adapt to nearly any terrain challenge or property condition. Characteristics like slope, mixed soil composition, and adjustability are no longer creating substantial hurdles for properties considered less-than-ideal for solar installation. Without expenses related to grading, heavy construction equipment, or tedious upkeep, solar arrays can now be incorporated across a much wider variety of properties than originally thought. As well the Modu-Rack I is designed as a continuous table - connecting arrays as part of a continuous system to accommodate various stringing needs, thus expanding the configuration possibilities for any given site.

“We’re very excited about the possibilities for Modu-Rack I,” said Bill Taylor, CEO of DCE Solar. “Our design team was tasked with solving one of the industry’s fundamental challenges – and they did so without making the solution cost prohibitive or unnecessarily complex.” Unlike standard ground-mounted arrays the Modu-Rack I can incorporate helical screws or I-beam foundations depending upon the soil requirements. As well, it allows for flexible string arrangements, offers integrated wire support, and a robust structural capacity. Modu-Rack I is also one of the only racking systems on the market that such streamlined design – minimizing parts and even allowing for various pre-assembly options for installation professionals. Other key benefits include bottom mounting that isolates loads and vibration more effectively than traditional products. The side effect of this design is safer, faster installation and adjustment since workers no longer have to climb over on lean on modules to install or maintain panels.

“Quality is only one component of what we build at DCE Solar,” said (Jeremy Turner) from the firm’s Engineering division. “With Modu-Rack, we let real-world applications dictate how to improve the design. Our solutions were 100% based on what installation professionals told us were their key problems in the business.” By solving terrain and assembly challenges, DCE Solar expects Modu-Rack I to advance the expansion of solar. “We fully believe that Modu-Rack will become the gold standard as the industry continues to progress,” said Taylor.

DCE Solar is known throughout the renewable energy market as a premier solar mounting hardware manufacturer. Their experienced engineering and global fabrication facilities provide the most economical rooftop and ground mount solar racking systems for commercial and utility scale projects.
