Rollout solar racking collects rainwater, cuts land-use requirements

Roll-A-Rack has developed a roll-forming solar racking system that captures rainfall on solar panels that can be used for irrigation.

Ohio-based Roll-A-Rack announced it has developed a roll-forming solar racking system that captures rainfall on solar panels. Harvested rainwater can be used for irrigation. The product is designed for flat roofs or ground-mounted systems.

The company said the solution requires half the land to produce the same amount of energy as conventional racking systems.
