Designed specifically for tile roofs, Zep System I offers the fastest and least expensive way to install PV arrays for flush-mount applications.
With its ability to optimize attachment point spacing in both east-west and north-south axes, Zep System I can offer a 25% reduction in roof attachment points — dramatically reducing the amount of time spent on the roof. With a series of drop-in, rock-in, and quarter-turn connections, Zep System I installs without the use of lengthy rails and separate grounding hardware and is universally adaptable to third-party roof attachment solutions such as tile-hooks, hanger bolts, and flashed standoffs.
Zep SolarSystem II™
Offering a fast and lower-cost way to flush mount PV modules, the Zep System II™ contains a series of drop-in and quarter-turn connections without the use of cumbersome rails.
This exclusive solar mounting system installs up to five times faster than conventional solar mounting systems, and offers auto grounding to eliminate the need for separate hardware, and a hyper-bonded grounding matrix, making grounding PV modules safe and reliable.
Zep Solar System III™
For flat roof applications, Zep System III™ from Zep Solar offers the fastest and least expensive solar mounting solution for PV arrays. With a series of drop-in and quarter turn connections, Zep System III greatly accelerates the process of commercial rooftop solar installation. Zep System III eliminates the need for mounting rails, requires very few parts, and simultaneously accomplishes structural and grounding connections. With less complexity than conventional solar mounting systems, Zep System III delivers both labor and logistics savings for commercial solar installation projects.
About Solar Energy
We've used the Sun for drying clothes and food for thousands of years, but only recently have we been able to use it for generating power. The Sun is 150 million kilometres away, and amazingly powerful. Just the tiny fraction of the Sun's energy that hits the Earth (around a hundredth of a millionth of a percent) is enough to meet all our power needs many times over.
In fact, every minute, enough energy arrives at the Earth to meet our demands for a whole year - if only we could harness it properly.
Solar panels collect solar radiation from the sun and actively convert that energy to electricity. Solar panels are comprised of several individual solar cells. These solar cells function similarly to large semiconductors and utilize a large-area p-n junction diode. When the solar cells are exposed to sunlight, the p-n junction diodes convert the energy from sunlight into usable electrical energy. The energy generated from photons striking the surface of the solar panel allows electrons to be knocked out of their orbits and released, and electric fields in the solar cells pull these free electrons in a directional current, from which metal contacts in the solar cell can generate electricity.
The more solar cells in a solar panel and the higher the quality of the solar cells, the more total electrical output the solar panel can produce.
