There is a lot of con- crete needed to install this system, but you could picture it opening up new sites in remote, harsh desert landscapes because of how often its panels could be cleaned with an automated system that uses much less water and no labor. Self-cleaning solution TerraSmart introduced the latest edi- tion to its racking portfolio, the TF3L. Similar to TerraSmart's TF2P, the TF3 Landscape Racking System is designed to maximize construction efficiency on large- scale utility-solar sites thus saving the cli- ent from unnecessary civil work. In addi- tion, the TF3L accommodates more pan- els per foundation, reducing overall site cost and optimizes panel capacity. The TF3 Landscape racking system is configured with six high rows by eight long columns and has a tilt angle of 35 degrees.
