My experience with DCE was very good. I will certainly recommend your product. I found that the best part was having someone from your company right there to assist me and the contractor with any questions we had.
Chris Bashta, Greenskies Renewable Energy (Meriden Landfill)
DCE Solar has been amazing to work with. The customer service is excellent! When ideas were bounced off of them they were quick to take note and look into improving on an already awesome system.
Ed Rabb, Dynamic Solar (Palmer Foundry)
Being in the field all the time has allowed me to see numerous types of racking systems/installations and I would say DCE’s system was definitely one of the better systems I’ve seen. I think the best part was how the system arrived already partially assembled. This allowed less human error in the field and also led to a quicker installation.
Chris Bashta, Greenskies Renewable Energy (Meriden Landfill)
The ease of installation was one of the biggest things I noticed. The amount of hardware is much less than the other systems making it quicker to install.
Ed Rabb, Dynamic Solar (Palmer Foundry)
I would say this specific racking system allowed us to have a quicker installation, because of the pre-assembly, which definitely lowers the installation labor and cost.

ASSA ABLOY

Berlin, CT
Size: 1.3MW, No. Panels: 4,140

The benefits of DCE Solar’s Contour DB are numerous. DCE Solar’s exclusive system allows for less site-grading. Some projects could have been derailed simply because of the grading costs.  This combined with a single point purlin connection allows the rack to pivot and seamlessly follow the topography, something that competing products struggle to match.

Product: Contour DB

Orientation: Portrait

Arrays : 104 2×20

Total Project size: 1.3MW

No. of modules: 4,140

Wind Speed (ASCE 7-10): 113 mph

Snow Load: 45 PSF

The Contour DB was the perfect choice for ASSA-ABLOY’s installation.  Difficult topography with some areas having a 20 degree slope would require significant grading to install conventional systems. Contour DB was chosen because it accommodated their difficult topography while saving time and money.

The advantages of DCE Solar’s Contour DB are substantial.

  • Single point purlin connection –allows the rack to pivot and seamlessly follow the topography.
  • Ease of alignment – Top beam adapter that gives unmatched adaptability and ease of alignment.
  • Nesting of zees & cees – Increased structural stiffness yielding a compact design.
  • Integrated grounding – no additional module grounding accessories and minimal grounding wire required.
  • Built-in wire support – no further wire trays needed making wiring easy
