Patriot Solar Group’s Spider ST™ Lowers Soft Costs for Commercial Solar Installations

Albion, MI – June 5, 2014 – Patriot Solar Group (PSG), a solar mounting systems manufacturer is seeing success with its most recently launched Spider ST™ roof mount system. The Spider ST™ is a polypropylene polymer-based roof mount for commercial flat roof applications and is quickly proving to be a market leader because of its unique cost saving features. 

unnamedAlthough mounting systems are defined as hardware costs, the Spider ST™ reduces soft costs, which account for a large percentage of installed system costs for roof-top solar projects.

Its “snap together” design requires zero tools for assembly and comes standard with integrated grounding – significantly lowering associated mechanical and electrical labor.  The design to build process is shortened due to zero roof penetrations and lighter roof loading because of its airfoil wind deflector design.

“Projects are getting financed quicker and more easily because of our extensive research data, wind tunnel testing and UL 2703 compliance – thus further reducing associated soft costs.” said Jeff Mathie, President of Patriot Solar Group, “Developers, building owners, roof manufacturers and financiers feel very comfortable using the Spider ST™ and we are seeing a stronger market acceptance towards polymer based materials for racking.”
