Array Technologies, joined by trusted partner RPCS, exhibits again at this year’s Solar Power International conference.

On the heels of attending and exhibiting at this year’s Solar Power International conference in Anaheim, California—the largest and fastest growing solar show in North America, and part of North America Smart Energy Week—RPCS reflects on the week’s many successes.

Here’s a look at some of the highlights.

Abuzz with nearly 20,000 energy professionals in the solar industry, this year’s SPI conference was one for the books. At the time of the show’s start, RPCS reached its biggest milestone yet: 266 projects and nearly 550MWs completed since 2014.

Before the official start of the Solar Power International conference on Tuesday, RPCS was invited to the Top Solar Contractors Gala Monday night to celebrate their win as a 2018 Top Solar Contractor, among hundreds of special guests. RPCS received an award for ranking No. 18 Top Solar Contractor overall, out of nearly 500 solar contractors throughout the U.S., and also ranked No. 3 Solar Installation Subcontractor, No. 8 California Solar Contractor, and No. 18 Utility Solar Contractor.

Tuesday morning, RPCS joined their partner Array Technologies in booth 1104, at the entrance to the exhibit hall, to once again show their support for the world’s leading and most reliable solar tracker. Visitors could see an in-depth demo of the DuraTrack HZ v3 solar tracker, topped with both bifacial modules and First Solar Series 6 modules.

Array’s booth was located right next to Shoals Technologies Group’s booth, the BoS leader that RPCS has also recently partnered with to deliver the next phase in their turnkey service. Earlier this year, RPCS announced its collaboration with Array, Shoals, and CAB Solar to offer their most streamlined turnkey solution yet: The Plug-N-Play Solar Tracker. The Plug-N-Play solution combines Shoals and CAB Solar above-ground wire management solutions for the Array DuraTrack HZ v3 solar tracker, aimed at simplifying your tracker project install, utilizing less specialized labor and requiring less time, resulting in faster commissioning speeds.

Overall, RPCS saw a bustle of activity all three days of the show. There was a great turnout, and engaging conversations happening at the booth. “This year’s SPI show was really a lot of fun with a lot of great energy,” says RPCS Chief Sales Officer Alex Smith. “All of our meetings were very collaborative and you could feel the excitement about the projects in the works for next year. While it’s hard to believe 2019 is only a few months away, we’re all looking forward to what lies ahead.”

We’re already looking forward to next year’s event in Salt Lake City, Utah. We hope to see you there!
