The Mount Joy facility's surface presented a number of design challenges including multiple roofs with varied slopes, an irregularly corrugated metal surface and limited reserve structural capacity for the PV system. Carmanah’s engineering team collaborated with Schletter Canada Inc. to propose an innovative design for the building’s requirements. Carmanah and Schletter adapted a standard racking product that would minimize the necessity for physically anchoring the solar generating array, allowing for the bulk of the system to be ballasted.
The installation features Heliene PV modules, commercial inverters locally manufactured in Ontario by Advanced Energy and a remote monitoring system that will report real-time solar generation.
