In 2002, our founders first became personally acquainted with the opportunities — and challenges — of developing commercial solar installations for flat roofs. Originally working in the commercial real estate industry, they were charged with installing a 330 kW rooftop solar PV system on a flagship world headquarters for the AstroPower company.
The project ignited the founders’ interest in solar electricity, but as property developers, they were unsatisfied with the roof-mounted racking systems available. Instead, our founders created a solar electric mounting system that optimized productivity and affordability. This system became the SolarDock — a patented, completely non-roof-penetrating commercial racking system.
The Smithsonian National Museum of African American History and Culture opens this weekend, and SolarDock is proud to be part of of this historic building.
