Zep Solar’s hardware is expected to deliver “significant reductions to total system costs and will become one of the quickest ways to install PV arrays for residential and commercial roof applications,” Trina Solar says.

Trina aims to incorporate the Zep Groove into its solar module design starting in the third quarter of 2011.

The combination of the products is also expected to eliminate the use of bulky mounting rails and separate grounding hardware, reducing parts count and hardware costs as well as allowing reductions in design, labour, and logistics costs.

Trina Solar plans to sell its Zep compatible solar photovoltaic (PV) modules, along with Zep Solar's recently updated and expanded Zep System II hardware, with roll-out in North American, European and Australian markets starting in the third quarter of 2011.
