Advanced Green Technologies Solar Panel Installation for JM Family Enterprises Earns Honorable Mention from Solar Builder Magazine at Solar Power International in Las Vegas.
Advanced Green Technologies (AGT) is proud to announce that Solar Builder Magazine has named AGT as an Honorable Mention recipient of its 2nd annual Project of the Year awards. The announcement was made at the solar industries largest convention, Solar Power International in Las Vegas, October, 2014.
AGT was recognized for its outstanding craftsmanship installing a 150 kW roof-mounted solar array for JM Family Enterprises at their headquarters in Deerfield Beach, Florida.
The solar array was designed and installed by AGT while keeping in mind the area’s threat for high hurricane wind speeds. During the pre-construction phase, AGT’s design team discovered that a post-tension concrete slab was supporting the existing roof system. In order to maintain the structural integrity of the building while satisfying the wind uplift requirements, AGT’s design team revised all the attachment details and utilize fastener and sleeve imbeds specifically designed for use in post-tension applications.
“We are honored to be recognized by the industry for our dedication to building solar energy systems in high-wind zone areas like South Florida. We believe it is crucial to continue evolving and be trendsetters in the latest technologies and design strategies,” mentions Clint Sockman, VP Renewable Energy, Advanced Green Technologies.
