For the Love of Metal

If you were an exhibitor or an attendee at PV America this year, we hope you had a successful show!  It was exciting to see everyone, and it’s always a treat to have a trade show so close to home (it’s only a little over a 3 hour drive to Boston for us, and pretty much a straight shot, almost all interstate). The venue was nice, READ THE REST….

A Marriage of Sun and Snow

Sister Companies Alpine SnowGuards and EcoFasten Solar work very closely together – in fact, the birth of EcoFasten Solar was made possible entirely due to the existence of Alpine SnowGuards. Formed in 1998, Alpine SnowGuards very quickly became the industry leader in snow management systems.  Being founded by a former roofer provided the knowledge and precision-based skills needed to engineer systems that would not only work, but READ THE REST….

Brackets Galore: An Installers Guide

When I walked through the door on my first day at EcoFasten Solar, I was baffled by all of the products that were being put in front of me, with names I was sure I would never remember (I got over that quickly).  It was a classic case of information overload.  After just a few weeks though, I had it down-pat, as it turned out it READ THE REST….

A Universal Mounting Solution for Corrugated Metal? Check!

Our President, Brian Stearns, along with our engineering crew, who I have to say is ridiculously rich with talent, have designed a solar roof mount solution for attaching solar panels to a corrugated metal roof.  So….what’s the big deal about that?  The big deal is found in the design itself. Almost all of the installers we’ve talked to who do installations on metal roofs have said READ THE REST….
