NEXTracker beefs up manufacturing presence in Brazil

NEXTracker solar trackersNEXTracker has expanded its manufacturing presence in Brazil to meet regional demand for the company’s smart, connected, and proven solar trackers. Leveraging Flex’s manufacturing base in Sorocaba, São Paulo State, and supported by over 9,000 Brazilian Flex employees, NEXTracker is now in a position to provide a Brazilian Development Bank (BNDES) compliant version of its product to solar farm developers and EPCs interested in accessing the local development bank credit lines, as well as to service the region with local spare parts inventory and technical support.

Brazil’s federal energy planning authority (EPE) recently doubled its forecast for installed capacity to 7 GW by 2024, owing to the result of the country’s initial solar auctions.

“NEXTracker’s experience and innovative products, coupled with Flex’s manufacturing expertise, operational discipline and financial strength is exactly what is needed to help Brazil achieve its solar energy goals,” said Nelson Falcão, NEXTracker Country Manager. “The product features and executive experience will enable our customers to have successful projects, while contributing to the Brazilian economy by adding solar jobs.”

 

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.
