Mexican 5-MW Project Installs SPG Solar Trackers

SPG Solar, a leading provider of commercial solar power products and services, today announced final shipment and consultation on a 5-MW solar power project in Cerro Prieto, Mexico. Iberdrola Ingenieria & Construccion Mexico S.A. de C.V. chose SPG Solar’s All-Weather SunSeeker tracker for the largest PV solar installation in Mexico, slated to go into production by year end. The Cerro Prieto project, which is owned by the state-owned electric utility company Comision Federal de Electricidad (CFE), deployed SPG Solar’s single-axis tracker to fulfill 60 percent — or 3 MWs — of the 5-MW project.

SPG Solar“This is a great opportunity for SPG Solar to showcase the incredible reliability and high performance of our single-axis tracker,” said Doug May, CEO of SPG Solar. “The rigorous engineering disciplines underpinning the SunSeeker tracker establish a new standard for cost-effective, high-performing solar-tracking solutions. It’s exciting to be adding such a prominent international project at this stage of our corporate growth.”

The All-Weather SunSeeker single axis tracker generates up to 25 percent more energy than fixed-tilt installations by directing panels to follow the trajectory of the sun through the course of the day for maximum sunlight exposure. Proven to reliably perform in all conditions and terrains, the SunSeeker tracker, which underwent a bankability analysis by engineering and construction firm Black & Veatch, has a pre-assembled design that minimizes installation and material costs.

Have you checked out our YouTube page?

We have a ton video interviews and additional content on our YouTube page. Recently we debuted Power Forward! -- a collaboration with BayWa r.e. to discuss higher level industry topics as well as best practices / trends for running a solar business today.

Our longer running side project is The Pitch -- in which we have awkward discussions with solar manufacturers and suppliers about their new technology and ideas so that you don't have to. We discuss everything from residential rail-less deck attaching and home solar financing to large-scale energy storage value stacking and utility-driven new home solar + storage microgrids.
