Advanced Green Technologies (AGT) Selects AET for 4.7 MW Ground Mount Project in Fort Lauderdale, Florida



FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. – March 15, 2016 – Applied Energy Technologies (AET), a preferred supplier of commercial and utility-scale racking systems and one of the top 10 solar racking companies in the United States, announces today that its Rayport™-G ECO ground mount solar racking system was selected by AGT, a leading commercial solar contractor in Florida, for a 4.7 MW project in Fort Lauderdale.

According to Florida Solar Energy Industries Association’s (FlaSEIA) Executive Director Mike Antheil, “Dropping prices on PV and balance of system components, combined with a general population who is energized about solar projects, Florida is ready to live up to its potential as the third largest solar opportunity market in the country.”

“We are proud to have met AGT’s high standards and join the solar movement in Florida,” said Aaron Faust, VP of Business Development at AET. “AGT recognized the value in our racking solutions and services through an extensive and detailed vetting process. We provide a combination of the highest quality and most cost-competitive racking systems on the market to deliver bankable solutions for utility-scale solar projects across the U.S.”

SolarWorld’s 320W Sunmodules and GE’s inverters were selected for the project. AET’s Rayport™-G ECO ground mount system is strong and durable having been engineered to withstand the most challenging environmental conditions, as well as light and compact allowing for high shipping density, significantly reduced freight costs and easier handling on the job site. The Rayport™-G ECO is UL listed and wind tunnel tested.

“AGT has a strong presence in Florida and we anticipate the Florida market to continue to grow,” said Clint Sockman, VP of AGT. “It’s important that we build strategic relationships with a racking supplier that we can rely on, and that’s what we found in AET for this project.”
