RABLE manufactures an innovative mounting structure for solar panels. A solution that allows mounting of solar panels on all flat roofs, even when the roof construction is very weak. With the potential to equip all rooftops with solar energy using our zero-ballast solar support system, we can protect nature and accelerate the energy transition.
RVO has concluded from research that more than half of Dutch commercial roofs are not suitable for solar installations. In the Netherlands, solar panels on a flat roof with more than 295 m2 of roof area are only possible after a costly renovation. RABLE has a self-supporting mounting system which allows, without any renovation costs, solar installations to be placed on these roofs. Our goal is therefore to utilize all roofs as soon as possible and provide them with renewable energy.
Our mission is to ensure conservation of nature by using roofs for solar energy generation. RABLE offers a solution to provide weak flat roofs with solar installations, requiring no investment and structural modifications to the roof. We believe that our cost-effective solution will contribute to an accelerated decision-making process and the necessary energy transition.
One of the biggest challenges for owners of large roofs is the cost of PV installation on roofs with structural constraints.
Investments are needed to make the roof suitable for solar energy, ranging from €15 to €75 per m2, depending on the structural limitation.
A scaled-up version of the EW series has been designed especially for Reginox. The RABLE XXL is twice the size of the standard version and can handle the weight of 8 solar panels per frame. The first phase of the solar panel installation project was completed in February, with more than 200 solar panels successfully installed on the roof of Reginox's factory in Rijssen.
Solar energy has become an increasingly popular energy source in recent years, and there's a good reason for that.
It is renewable, environmentally friendly and cost-effective in the long run. However, installing solar panels on industrial roofs can be challenging, and not as feasible as one might think. Research* shows that 60% of large roofs in the Netherlands are more or less structurally suitable for solar installations.
Our innovative technology allows us to install solar panels on roofs previously unsuitable for PV, making clean energy accessible to all. By using rooftops to produce solar energy, we preserve valuable natural or agricultural land and reduce our carbon footprint.
