TORONTO - The AllSun Tracker has been selected as a top green product for 2012.
The award announcement was made today at the Greenbuild International Conference and Expo in Toronto, Canada.
The tenth annual BuildingGreen Top-10 product award recognizes the most innovative and exciting green building products of the year. Manufactured by the Williston, Vt.-based AllEarth Renewables, the AllSun Tracker was the only solar PV product to receive an award.
The AllSun Tracker is a pole-mounted solar energy system that uses GPS and wireless technology to follow the sun throughout the day allowing it to produce up to 45 percent more energy than typical fixed systems.
"We are excited to have our AllSun Tracker recognized by BuildingGreen with this Top-10 selection," said David Blittersdorf, CEO and founder of AllEarth Renewables. "We innovated and designed the AllSun Tracker to produce more energy from the sun, making solar practical and affordable for more homeowners, businesses, and non-profits. With nearly 900 solar trackers installed in Vermont alone, we believe we have a product ready for the northeastern solar market in the year ahead."
The award was selected by the editors of Environmental Building News and GreenSpec.
"Our selections of the Top-10 Green Building Products represent a wide range of product types in many different areas," said BuildingGreen founder and GreenSpec executive editor Alex Wilson.
Other products included among the Top-10 list are decking made from recycled carpeting, an innovative LED lighting module, and a toilet that uses a passive vacuum-assist and just 0.8 gallons.
The Top-10 list was composed from new products added to the GreenSpec Directory during the past year and new products covered in Environmental Building News. To allow for an objective review, neither GreenSpec nor Environmental Building News accepts advertising or payment for product listings.
