Alion Energy uses robotic installation technology and construction industry best practices to build local, utility scale projects twice as fast and with less than half the labor. Further, energy output is maximized with simple, cost-effective cleaning robots. The entire mounting structure and method was designed from the ground up to work with our robots, and the robots were designed to work with our mounting. The result is the lowest cost of electricity in the solar industry.
As an innovative EPC and O&M service provider, we build local, utility scale projects faster and for up to 25% less, while producing more energy than standard fixed-tilt projects.
Simply Faster. ROVER – our robotic installation vehicle – and robust, time-tested construction practices work together to cut out time and labor-intensive installation work, speed up installations, and elevate the nature of local, solar installation work.
Lower Installed Costs. Smaller crews, faster installations and fewer materials deliver higher profits and make local, utility-scale projects more affordable.
Higher Panel Performance. SPOT – the first, cost-effective robotic cleaning solution – provides automated solar hygiene to prevent performance loss due to overgrown vegetation and soiling, especially in desert and dusty areas.
Ideal for Challenging Environments. While we improve the LCOE for any project, our non-penetrating, concrete rail system and powerful adhesives are ideal for:
- Brownfields and landfills where soil can’t be penetrated
- Environments that can corrode metal
- High-wind environments
