A+ Sun Systems means:

Overcome the impossible: SunNet Roof allows installation of photovoltaic systems on difficult roofs where traditional mounting structures cannot be applied. SunNet Ground allows installation of PV systems on agrivoltaic, canal top, landfill, quarry walls, vineyards and orchards.

Offer: We offer licensing / acquisition of our revolutionary technology.
We offer patents, drawings, software of our revolutionary solar structures in order for you to produce more competitive and profitable solar racking systems. Bifacial panels compliant, tracker available.
We offer patents, drawings, software and know-how of innovative solar structures in order that you can produce more profitable and performing mounting structures for solar panels.
We intend to be your technology provider, NO a supplier of a product. You can utilize your machines to manufacture and sell directly in the market, solar structures designed with our tensioned cable technology for both traditional applications and new applications.

Savings: technology that makes the installation of photovoltaic system faster, easier and efficient, reduces turnkey system cost.
Compared to the standard flat ground racking system, the tensioned cable system is 65% lighter (only 14 T/MW), 50% cost savings and 80% installation savings.
The perfect solution for bifacial panels (both ground and roof). Tracker technology is available. New applications for solar plants (Agrivoltaic, Canal Top, etc. ).
