Stion Teams with ARiES Solar to Power R.M. Moore’s Commercial Property in Knoxville

“This was the first time we used a frameless module and Stion was very helpful in identifying complimentary mounting solutions and installation best practices.  We are very impressed by the look and performance of the module and look forward to using them on future projects. Working with an American manufacturer gives us confidence that they will deliver a quality product and stand behind their promises, with the added benefit of close proximity for support.” – Harvey Abouelata, President of ARiES. Stion and Cycle Gear have a lot in common. Both companies come from modest roots in Northern California and are now sweeping the nation with high-quality products. Cycle Gear is the largest and fastest growing retailer of motorcycle parts in the nation. This installation is the second solar PV system for Sperry Van Ness R.M. Moore’s commercial property management team. Stion and ARiES are helping Sperry Van Ness R.M. Moore reduce their operating expenses and minimize the environmental impact of their building portfolio. 345 Stion STL-145 frameless modules were installed at Cycle Gear. The Stion STL frameless modules offer a number of benefits: Efficient conversion of light in warm climates (temperature coefficient = 0.26%/°C) Dual glass construction provides significantly improved moisture resistance and lifetime durability Unrivaled all-black aesthetics Frameless design doesn’t require module grounding “Tennessee is an important market for us and we’re excited to team with solar installers like ARiES to provide Tennessee businesses with higher energy yields which in turn leads to a better return on investment (ROI) and a solar solution that is Simply Better” said Justin Redd, Director of Sales for Stion.   About Stion: Stion...
