Nextracker ships 50 GW of single-axis solar tracker technology globally
Solar tracker developer Nextracker surpassed 50 GW of worldwide shipments, a total equivalent to California’s peak electricity demand. The company’s solar tracking equipment has been shipped to: 40 countries on six continents since 2014.
“Nexttracker has been a trusted partner of Mortenson’s solar company for many years. It is an organization that is easy to do business with and their tracker solutions are proven and reliable. Nextracker is pioneering the future of renewable energy solutions and we congratulate them on reaching such a monumental milestone,” said Eric Grenz, VP and CEO of Mortenson.
Nexttracker offers its NX Horizon solar tracker, which is compatible with bifacial modules and interfaced with the company’s proprietary TrueCapture smart control software. TrueCapture helps single-axis solar panels to compensate for cloudiness and shade between rows and is programmed to optimize energy yield for split-cell PV modules.
“We are drawn to Nextracker’s unique design that offers a competitive advantage in buildability and energy capture,” said Brian Gorda, VP of engineering and pre-construction at Terra-Gen. “Their technological advancements allow us to develop more complicated project sites with the same high performance that was previously unworkable.”
TrueCapture has been deployed in 20 GW projects equivalent to 150 solar installations, more than a third of the company’s output. The software also has an independent row architecture to aid in solar panel cleaning and vegetation management.
“Our executive leadership team draws on decades of experience as developers, builders and operators of solar power plants,” said Dan Shugar, CEO and founder of Nextracker. “That allows us to understand that factories must produce maximum energy, have highly efficient construction statistics and have lower maintenance costs. We then incorporate customer feedback to deliver value across that spectrum.”
