Atlas Piers of Atlanta installs helical anchors for a solar panel foundation project in Dalton Georgia.

 

 

 

The small town of Dalton, Georgia is moving toward becoming the site of the largest solar field in the state. The project, owned by Georgia Power, will bring sustainable energy to the Dalton area for many years to come.

This solar panel project is made possible by the use of ECP helical piles installed by Atlas Piers of Atlanta. The efficient installation of helical piles allows for exact layout of the solar arrays and will provide years of support against wind and weather. The helical piles provided by Earth Contact Products are made from recycled steel which has been a perfect match for renewable energy sources such as solar.

Atlas Piers of Atlanta has used the efficient installation nature of the helical piles to keep phase 1 of the project on time while providing the project engineers a documented installation record. The documentation will provide project managers and engineers, proof of capacity and documentation of meeting design guidelines.

Solar Power and Helical Anchors

The use of helical anchors and solar power are efficient solutions and renewable energy sources for your home or business.

 

The use of helical anchors is making the installation of large solar panel facilities simpler and more efficient. Efficiency is one of the key ingredients for solar panels. Solar panels can be the optimal solution for you with minimal disruption to your home or business. Solar Power is a safe choice. Solar power is available in quantity at peak usage times. Current solar panels offer up to 50% more power than panels of just a few years ago. Solar panels that are more efficient provide the strongest return on your investment.  Higher efficiency means more savings per square foot. Helical anchors help make this all possible.

Helical ground anchors are engineered deep foundation members that provide high compressive and tension holding power. Their unique design can eliminate concrete foundation members that are often the source of construction delays. Helical anchors can be configured for most renewable energy applications in most soils. Installation of helical anchors is very fast and can be performed using relatively small equipment in hard to access site conditions. A verifiable load capacity can be determined for each location to assure owners of long-term stability.

Efficiency and renewability are two things that solar power and helical anchors have in common. Solar power is obviously a renewable energy source that will help satisfy our energy appetite. Earth Contact Products, a major helical supplier to the Solar Industry, uses recycled steel in the production of their helical products.  According to their website, “Our tubular products … are therefore at least 95-98% recyclable”. This commitment to recycling and Green Initiative makes helical anchors and solar power very Earth Friendly and Efficient.
