Rapid Roll Solar Panels
This is the Rapid Roll Solar Patented Technology that is used for efficient, off-grid portable power, but it’s not for just any measly amount of power. This innovative technology can create a high-capacity solar power plant with a rollable tow-out solar field that can be deployed in just two minutes! This commercial-scale solar technology was developed by solar company Renovagen Ltd., based in Milton Keynes in Buckinghamshire, England.
Renovagen’s efficient invention is a flexible, rollable solar PV array that is a single piece “mat” with built-in structural support that’s entrenched in power-transmission cabling. This mat is permanently wired into Renovagen’s spooling mechanism, so all that needs to be done for deployment is to unroll it and switch it on! Given that all of its mechanisms are all permanently built into the system, no cable connections are needed on-site. There are many pros of the Rapid Roll system when compared to conventional rigid-panel systems. It provides 10x the power capacity due to the large surface area it stores on the roll.
Only two people are needed for the smaller versions, which can be installed by hand, however, the fastest and easiest way to install a Rapid Roll solar field is by vehicle tow. The entire system can be up and running within a few minutes, instead of many hours. Solar engineers onsite aren’t needed as the Rapid Roller has an innovative modular, resilient electrical architecture, which optimizes the performance of every solar panel. This helps with light conditions due to slope and shading that may occur during installation.
This solar technology is available in the Rapid Roll “T” trailer-scale solar power system, which is up to 16kW, as well as the FAST FOLD Solar Mats, which operate in conjunction with the FAST FOLD Energy Hub. The Rapid Roll offers a very transportable solution, which can be airlifted by an array of medium and heavy-lift helicopters. Another simple solution is being mounted on an on-road or off-road trailer or flat-bed truck. The aforementioned FAST FOLD Solar Mats can be installed directly on the ground, or lifted onto shipping containers, roofs, or other structures. These solar panels can last for up to a decade.
