NEXTracker now shipping 100 MW of trackers each week

NEXTracker-product-showcase-3NEXTracker has shown significant growth in a fairly short amount of time. The company’s latest announcement highlights this: NEXTracker is now shipping 100 MW of its solar trackers per week to locations around the world. NEXTracker has over 1,800 MW of advanced trackers operating or under construction with several dozen customers on five continents.

“We’re totally focused on the success of our customers by providing design services, value-added features, product quality emphasis, and on-site support during this period of rapid growth and worldwide adoption. Our executive team has over 100 years of cumulative tracker product and solar project experience that we’re leveraging to help customers maximize results on their solar projects around the world,” said NEXTracker CEO Dan Shugar. “Leading project developers, owners and EPCs are increasingly selecting NEXTracker for the advancements we’ve refined to ensure the construction of solar power systems that generate higher energy yield, offer greater durability and increased savings.”


A solution for commercial, industrial and utility-scale solar power systems, NEXTracker is now being used in a significant percentage of grounded-mounted PV projects. NEXTracker’s fewer foundations and assembly points help mitigate geotechnical risk and accelerate project construction schedules. With independent rows and high slope tolerance, NEXTracker minimizes site preparation costs while providing the flexibility to install more solar power per site.

NEXTracker’s enhanced construction tolerances, self-grounding and self-powered design provide valuable savings in labor and materials. The tracker’s wide rotational range and advanced tracking algorithms provides a significant energy yield gains, of 15 to 30% more energy, compared to non-tracking solar arrays in sunny areas.

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.
