Customers can realize savings by both purchasing solar tracker materials from RPCS and storing them safely and cost effectively in RPCS’s tracker storage facilities to serve projects nationwide.
RPCS has the experience of engineering solar tracker projects in-house to give project owners and developers a competitive edge when it comes to planning and purchasing projects in advance in order to obtain the highest value of the ITC. RPCS’s strategy also helps customers minimize risks from project or technology changes.
RPCS’ Safe Harbor strategy offers design flexibility for future projects by selecting components that are less likely to change as the engineering is finalized and the project is nearing construction. Such materials will not lose their value or become barriers to other BOS selections when the projects are ready to proceed.
RPCS expects to build upon the 2019-2020 Safe Harbor success in anticipation of the 2022-2023 step down.
