Using Helical Piles for Alternative Energy

The use of helical piles is unlimited. There are so many applications that helical piles can be used for that will provide a stable foundation for any project you are working on. This includes Alternative Energy such as solar or wind energy. PierTech helical piers are often used in many different green technology applications.

The applications include:

  • Solar Energy
  • Wind Energy
  • Fragile Environments/Ecosystems
  • Boardwalks
  • Wetland Construction
  • Shoring
  • Sea Walls
  • Oil and Gas Industries
  • Environmental Walkways

Using PierTech helical piers is especially important because they are:

  • Environmentally friendly
  • They do not mess up lawn and landscape like other systems
  • They can be removed and reused
  • They are cost-effective
  • Permanent solutions for the foundation of alternative energy applications
  • They can be installed in any weather, year round, with no waiting on curing
  • Vibration free
  • Patented products that will stand the test of time

The use for solar energy is they provide a strong foundation, that will remain stable for a lifetime. They are installed without excessive excavating, and allows for solar installation in a matter of hours instead of days.

Using helicals for wind energy simplifies the installation. The helicals will support the foundation for the tower, and can support the guy wire, allowing the tower to be raised without the need for concrete or curing.

PierTech is a pioneer of the environmentally friendly construction process, especially since many applications are constructed in an area that is environmentally sensitive. Helical piles will allow for minimal impact on the existing surrounding ecosystem. PierTech’s system are great when working close with nature.
