Pour-in-Place™ Ballasted Ground System
Concrete Installation Methods
Utilizing concrete trucks to pour directly into tubs: 20 men estimated install rate 1.49 MW per week
Bobcats with pouring buckets allow fast concrete installation on weight sensitive landfill caps: 20 men estimated install rate 1.31 MW per week
“One of the unique aspects of the project's design is the GameChange racking system, with no posts driven into the ground. The GameChange system features a Pour-In-Place™ Ballasted racking system, with a non-penetrating concrete ballast block design. That is one of the reasons that we liked the GameChange system because it is a Pour-in-Place ballasted system. It's self-leveling, which was a nice feature. We are able to get the solar modules all in a straight line, even if the ground beneath isn't.”
“Working on a landfill requires that you pay careful attention to any equipment that will contact the existing ground surface, so that the environmental integrity of the site can be maintained. Working with GameChange Solar allowed us to design this installation cost effectively to ensure that our project resulted in an overall environmental gain in the town of Patterson.”
“As a leading Distributed Energy Resources and technology company, Tangent values reliability and innovation. GameChange’s constant improvement in their trackers and racking embodies the combination of practicality and innovation we strive to provide our C&I customers”
“Fastest ballasted ground system I've installed: We just drop the racks into forms and then pour the concrete, very few parts, very simple to deploy. ”
