Install Anywhere

  • Remote, rural and sites in harsh conditions 

  • Suitable for all ground and soil types, including landfills, with minimal ground penetration and limited to no civil works required.

  • Wind-resistant and already deployed in cyclone areas

Short or Long Term Solutions

  • Use the energy when you need it, pack it up if operations move or land is needed for redevelopment

Scalable Solutions

  • Flexibility to scale the system to meet customer needs on a project by project basis or remove a system as demand requires

Hybrid  Solutions

  • Integrates with other energy systems, including battery energy storage, wind and more

How it Works

5B’s revolutionary MAVERICK technology combines modular design and prefabrication all completed at the 5B factory to streamline engineering, procurement and construction for ground-mounted solar facilities. Each MAVERICK solar array is folded up, packed onto a truck, shipped to site and deployed in minutes by a team of three people. MAVERICK reduces on-site labor and time and requires minimal ground preparations, allowing for rapid solar deployment in more places than ever before. This is easily scalable for any sized solar system, from residential-sized systems to utility-scale.

Applications

MAVERICK is amortized over the design life, not the project life, allowing for easy reversibility or redeployment to generate power across multiple projects with a lifespan of 1-15 years. This makes MAVERICK the best solution for temporary, short-term or medium-term solutions across a diverse customer base. With minimal ground preparations and no civil works required, MAVERICK can be easily deployed to remote, rural or harsh weather locations.
