Flat roof solar mounting supplier PanelClaw announced it has undergone independent testing by DNV of its mounting system clawFR. The completed bankability assessment can provide further assurances to solar installers on the quality of PanelClaw’s mounting products.
“This report will make it easier and cheaper to finance and insure projects built with clawFR,” said Costa Nicolaou, CEO of PanelClaw. “The North American rooftop sector is poised for explosive growth in this decade. That growth requires solar mounting hardware that is reliable, durable, and bankable. Not only are we the first in the flat roof sector to deliver a bankability report, but I’m committing to doing new reports every year moving forward.”
The bankability evaluation lasted four months and involved a detailed assessment, including sharing of test reports, testing methodologies, trade secrets, installation manuals and other pertinent information with DNV.
Stijn Vos, CEO of ESDEC Solar Group, PanelClaw’s parent company, added, “The C&I sector continues to mature globally, and as part of this maturation we will continue to demonstrate to our customers around the world that our brands deliver the most bankable and insurable products. I commend the PanelClaw team for leading the way.”
