Landfill Case Study

Ideal for landfill sites.



Adams Landfill, 1.1 MW - Owned by Tecta Solar

The array is constructed on the capped landfill on East Road in Adams. Panda Bear, a ballasted solution, was used in this project to prevent puncturing the cap. Panda Bear is selected for landfill projects given its key attributes:

  • Low (7-12 PSF), evenly distributed platform loads
  • Support adjustability allows for aesthetic maintenance in cases of differential settling
  • No piles or drilling required


Non-penetrating Support

Light-weight construction.



Accommodates Uneven Terrain

Pivoting ballast pan to adapt to changes in terrain

Multiple mounting holes to accommodate various module widths and inter-row spacing adjustments

Adjustable posts provide +/-3" height range in 1" increments - accommodating changes in ground height over time

Brackets connect rows with a single screw, allowing the system to adapt to localized slopes +/- 20 degrees




The Claw
