lemington, NJ , — According to a sur- vey published in the

said Lyle Rawlings , a solar pioneer and president of ASP since its founding in 1991. “We attribute our rapid growth in large part to our innovative Sol- stice Mounting System, which we developed and patented, as well as the outstanding service we provide to our customers.” Rankings in the survey were determined by the number of Megawatts (MW) of electrical power installed by each solar contractor, which ranged from 400MWby First Solar of Tempe, AZ to 0.25MW by Solar Design Tech of Ogden, UT. Advanced Solar Products, with 45MW of

installed capacity, was ranked number 17. Solstice Mounting System “The Solstice Mounting Sys- tem is a ballasted system that uses weight to hold down the racking and modules instead of attaching them directly to the site surface,” Rawlings ex- plains. “The system is modular, with all units having rigid con- nections to all adjacent units rather than directly to the roof or ground. This makes installa- tion faster, easier and less ex- pensive by eliminating roof and ground penetration. The struc- tural supports also function as wind deflectors and, because the panels are interconnected, one unit or row cannot peel off in the wind. As a result, the system can withstand winds up to 145 miles per hour.” The Solstice Mounting Sys- tem demonstrated its supe- rior wind resistance when the system installed on the roof of The Cape May Convention Center, directly in the path of Super Storm Sandy as it made landfall, prevented even a single solar panel from being dislodged. Record Setting Installation Advanced Solar Products recently completed instal- lation of a massive 14.1MW ground mounted solar array spanning a 50-acre parcel of land on the East Windsor, NJ site of The McGraw-Hill Companies. The system is the Western Hemisphere’s largest privately owned, net-metered solar project and will provide electrical power to McGraw- Hill’s 180,000 s/f data center. The company estimates that the solar array will produce 18 million kilowatt-hours (kwh) of electricity annually, eliminat- ing approximately 12,687 met- ric tons of carbon-equivalent emissions produced by 2,488 gasoline-powered automobiles. McGraw-Hill also plans to plant approximately 25 acres of trees surrounding the instal- lation. One of the primary reasons why McGraw-Hill chose ASP was because its Solstice Mount- ing System, which requires no ground penetrations, is more environmentally friendly than conventional mounting sys- tems. For over 20 years, Lyle Raw- lings and Advanced Solar Products have led the way in solar energy design and con- struction using sustainable technologies. n
