In another move to drive down the costs of solar PV, PanelClaw introduces Polar Bear III, its new flat roof mounting system. The new Polar Bear product takes the best aspects of PanelClaw’s existing Polar Bear, Grizzly Bear and Kodiak Bear flat roof portfolio and combines them into a single platform with more competitive pricing.

“Polar Bear III provides a pathway to more market opportunities for our partners and ensures rapid growth of the whole industry,” says Constantino Nicolaou, CEO of PanelClaw. “PanelClaw’s commitment to lowering the cost of solar is relentless. Lowering the cost of racking without sacrificing safety and reliability is a challenging endeavor. PanelClaw is the best solar mounting company in the world at fulfilling this essential requirement.”
Executive Vice President of Services and Sales Zach Ward notes the release of the new Polar Bear product provides customers with the construction speed and flexibility required to lower costs at every stage of a project’s lifecycle, setting PanelClaw apart from its competitors.
