Nextracker marked a new milestone as the company surpassed 600 projects delivered in its distributed generation (DG) portfolio. Driven by customers realizing significant energy gains using its NX Horizon solar tracker systems, the company’s DG projects are deployed worldwide in commercial and industrial applications, including data centers, farming, retail, education and manufacturing verticals.
“Distributed generation technology plays a key role in solving energy grid infrastructure challenges to meet rising global demand for clean energy,” said Dan Shugar, Nextracker founder and CEO.
To capture this DG growth and support its growing global ecosystem of DG solar infrastructure, Nextracker entered into two new agreements with channel partners RP Construction Services (U.S.) and Vergo (Turkey and regional solar markets).
“We’re committed to bringing our customers the most advanced technology solutions available on the market, and partnering with Nextracker is key to that mission,” said Eb Russell, CEO of RP Construction Services (RPCS). “The combination of Nextracker’s technology performance advantages, proven total project cost savings, and ability to be deployed just about anywhere including challenging project sites on tight schedules is a big win for us and our DG customers.”
Nextracker’s channel partners are intensively trained and qualified to sell the company’s flagship NX Horizon solar tracker systems enabling customers to scale their DG projects more rapidly in the commercial and industrial segment, which is actively seeking to reduce energy costs and carbon emissions while increasing energy delivery reliability. These channel partners will provide Nextracker products and systems to address the smaller utility-scale market and DG solar power generation applications typically under 30 MW.
“Challenging land constraints and hilly terrain in our regional markets are ideally suited to Nextracker’s terrain following solar tracker system, maximizing benefits and lowering costs for our customers,” said Nevzat Taşkın, founder and CEO of Vergo.
With more than 90 GW of smart solar trackers operational or under fulfillment around the world, Nextracker NX Horizon solar trackers are well-suited for both utility-scale and DG solar projects. NX Horizon’s independent-row, balanced tracker design and software solutions enable deployments in all geographies, sizes, and most terrains — from flat sunny and rectangular sites to irregular more diffuse and undulating locations. The NX Horizon platform allows EPCs to conform to sites with irregular and rolling terrain layouts and can eliminate the need for additional grading, lowering costs, and using space more efficiently while helping to boost energy yield and financial returns for both utility-scale and DG project owners.
