In 2020, new solar installations dominated the expansion of renewable energy capacity.

According to data published on April 5, 2021 by Irena (International Renewable Energy Agency), 260 GW of green energy capacity were installed in 2020, i.e. 50% faster growth compared to that recorded in 2019. Solar (127 GW) and wind (111 GW) account for 91% of these new renewable energy capacities.

In 2020, the increase in installed capacity (by 10.3%) – dominated by new solar (127 GW) and wind (111 GW) installations – exceeds long-term projections, so much so that at the end of last year the world’s capacity for producing energy from renewable sources was 2,799 GW.

Even though 2020 was a tough year, we had a lot of difficulties, but we still overcame them and stayed in the solar industry. We always believe that hard work, determination and perseverance always win out.

Have you ever been confused about whether to choose steel or aluminum solar support?With our 10 years of experience in producing galvanized-steel and aluminum structures, there are two types of projects that are recommended for you to consider.

The first is suitable for the Middle East Region, it is also the common type of stent in the Middle East. Today, we’re not going to talk about simple solar steel stand, we’re going to talk about an updated Mac (Magnesium-Aluminum-Zinc), New introduced a new profile surface treatment, more conducive to anticorrosive material

MAC is a remarkably superior corrosion-resistant hot-dip Magnesium-Aluminum-Zinc ally coated steel sheet product. This amazing product lasts longer in the most severe environments, provides built-in cut edge rust protection, and promotes cost savings through less maintenance. MAC uniquely presents a self-healing, ecologically friendly alternative to other conventional metal coatings.

Key Features of MAC

* Longer service life than other coated products

* Cut edge rust protection – the hallmark feature of MAC

* Thinner coating yet more protection- ecologically friendly

* Excellent in severe environments-especially coastal and agricultural

* Cost savings through longer service life and reduced maintenance

The second type of solar mounting structure is commonly seen in Asia, Europe and America’s big solar project, Southeast Asia’s rapid rise in recent years is also inseparable from it. Landscape 4 array and portrait 2 array is common designs.

Advantages :

* High of pre-assembly

* Lower entry

* Convenient installation

* Construction fast

* Light and easy carrying

Because of this, these types of aluminum solar panel mounting rails products have received wide acclaim. But even such cheap and useful solar racking products have been hampered in some countries by antidumping.

Here’s a comparison chart :

(Depending on the country and the project, the design can vary)
