GameChange Pour-In-Place™ Ballasted Ground System with Round Tubs Speeds Install Dramatically

NEW YORK, NEW YORK – October 31, 2016 – GameChange Solar announced that the Pour-In-Place™ Ballasted Ground System with new improved round tubs and adjustable base brackets has substantially improved on the install speed record that GameChange Pour-In-Place™ had already set with its previous Pour-In-Place™ system.

Round tubs for the GameChange Pour-In-Place™ has made fast…faster. Installers just drop round tubs, self-level using large hoop-shaped base brackets which slide up and down 6 inches on the posts, enabling rapid leveling to adjust to extreme slopes in all directions as often seen on landfill sites. Then attach purlins and level everything while the whole system is super light because concrete is not yet installed. Last step just pour in concrete with bobcat or pump. No bracing of any kind needed on round tubs. This install is the fastest ever seen on any ballasted ground system.

Derick Botha, VP of Business Development of GameChange Solar, stated: "In addition to the greater adjustability, a number of labor intensive steps has been removed and ease of install has increased primarily through the elimination of bracing on the tubs. With this innovative introduction, concrete requirement has been reduced by up to 25% - with the load being distributed where it is needed. We at GameChange Solar see this as further advancing our mission to making solar more affordable.”
