Large Screw Pile Supports 15 Panel Solar Grid

BASI Solar Panel - Ribbon Cutting

BASI Solar Panel - Rear Shot

A substantial 8-5/8″ diameter shaft screw pile sits rock solid supporting a 15 solar panel grid next to BASI Research in St. Andrews, MB.  Amazingly, this is the nation’s first off-grid airport hanger and further it will serve to create hydrogen for airships.

In an effort to “Think Green”, Evolve Green, a Manitoba based expert in solar energy approached Postech Screw Piles Winnipeg to install a solid foundation that could be removed, reused or recycled.  Not only was the result an eco-friendly solution, it also saved time and money vs. the concrete alternative which required curing and a massive base that could not be easily removed.

Do you require a solid foundation for a solar energy project you’re considering?  Call Stan Higgins, Independent Owner of Postech Screw Piles Winnipeg directly at 204.793.0653 to discuss whether or not screw piles can help cut cost and time.  Website:
