NEXTracker commissions tracker for 82 MW SunEdison project in Honduras

NEXTracker, Inc., designer and manufacturer of the world’s most advanced single axis photovoltaic trackers, completed tracker commissioning for the SunEdison 82 MW Pacifico and Choluteca solar power plants in Honduras. SunEdison developed and built the system.

NEXTracker solar trackers“SunEdison’s experience outfitting projects with NEXTracker technology continues to yield positive results,” stated David Springer, chief operating officer of solar operations for SunEdison. “NEXTracker’s higher energy yield design and installation cost savings help us maximize project financial returns. NEXTracker helps us minimize site grading requirements and reduces the cost of maintenance.”

Sun Edison“It’s inspiring to see Honduras emerge as one of the largest solar markets in Latin America. We’re extremely proud to be providing our transformational trackers to SunEdison, especially for the completion of these milestone projects – two of the largest solar installations in Honduras,” said Dan Shugar, CEO of NEXTracker. “SunEdison is leveraging NEXTracker to accelerate project deployment schedules and maximize project economics in Latin America and around the world.”

Global demand for solar trackers continues to expand rapidly as the market has transitioned to higher irradiance locations where trackers deliver outstanding increases in power production. NEXTracker’s technology is a cost-effective solution to maximize solar project returns. Advanced features address and overcome layout constraints, significantly reduce the number of foundations and use of steel, eliminate stress on the drive components by aligning modules with the axis of rotation and simplify AC wiring requirements.

 

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.
