AltaCrete’s soil stabilization technology is a popular method used in the energy sector for solar panels and wind energy. These all weather roads and site pads require minimal maintenance and are a cost effective solution for the energy sector. Reliable access to energy sites is critical. As municipalities turn to renewable energy solutions the importance of these roads become an increasingly important part of the process.
Some of the problems associated with constructing these access roads are the access to quality aggregates during construction and constant road surface maintenance. These issues lead to costly repairs and traffic congestion along with dust generation from unsealed surfaces. In turn, this dust leads to reduced visibility, health and safety concerns. Accumulated dust on the surface of solar panels can reduce a system’s efficiency by up to 50 per cent!
