New O&M solutions from Exosun: Project design software, robotic cleaner

Exosun, a supplier of advanced, cost-effective solar tracking solutions for ground-mounted PV plants, sent word of two new initiatives designed to optimize the LCOE of a PV project.

ExoDesigner: Software to speed up plant design

ExoDesigner is a free of charge, easy-to-install AutoCAD add-on application that enables engineering teams to design the layout of PV plants harvesting the best Exosun’s trackers technology. This time-saving tool is incorporated into the existing AutoCAD, enabling users to continue working on their existing plant layouts or create new ones. Only a few minutes are needed to draw a power plant, test and compare multiple tracker configurations, and then reduce significantly the project engineering time and costs.

Cleaning solution

To ensure PV production stays at its best, the equation of soiling vs. cleaning frequency and costs needs to be managed. That’s why; Exosun has developed a revolutionary water-free modules cleaning solution that dramatically reduces cleaning cost versus solutions using maintenance vehicles and water. The Exosun’s cleaning robot offers a desert proof, scalable and plug & play solution for an effortless and fast modules cleaning.

This cost-effective solution, avoids acquisition and transportation of expensive distilled water in remote locations, with a cleaning rate up to 5 MWp cleaned in 8 hours by 2 operators.

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've discusses 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.

We also post our Project of the Year announcements there! Interviews with this year's winners will be up starting the week of Nov. 8. Head there and subscribe today to stay on top of all this extra stuff.
