By on April 25, 2016


FREMONT, CA, APRIL 25, 2016 – NEXTracker, Inc., a Flex company, a leader in photovoltaic systems, announces a significant milestone with cumulative delivery of over three gigawatts (3 GW) of solar trackers to project locations around the world. In addition to a significant presence in the Americas, the Company is serving customers in emerging solar markets including India, China, Australia, and the Middle East.

“We’re focused on our mission of helping solar become the largest source of energy, by advancing the power plant of the future,” said NEXTracker CEO Dan Shugar. “This year marks a turning point for the industry.  Solar is now the lowest cost power solution in key markets, and its cost effectiveness, combined with global clean energy priorities, is fueling record demand.  Our products were created to deliver the most competitive solar power by minimizing all costs (capital, installation, and operations) – while generating more energy.  And our team is comprised of world class industry executives to focus on each customer – to ensure every project meets or exceeds our customers’ goals.”

“Three gigawatts of trackers delivered is a tremendous accomplishment,” said John Curcio, Chief Commercial Officer at Cupertino Electric, Inc. “We’re proud to have been one of NEXTracker’s first customers.  And we have been impressed by the way they have evolved tracker technology; we’re working together on several new projects.”  

“We congratulate NEXTracker on its impressive 3 GW installation milestone,” said David Dwelle, President of Pacific Power. “Pacific Power fielded a project using NEXTracker’s pioneering 80 module row systems, and it’s performed flawlessly.”

NX Horizon is a leading solution for distributed generation and utility-scale solar power systems, with over 100 MW per week of current shipments. With independent rows and high slope tolerance, fewer foundations and assembly points, geotechnical risk is minimized while project construction schedules are accelerated. NX Horizon’s self-grounding and self-powered technology provides valuable savings in labor and materials, while its 120-degree rotational range enables PV systems to take full advantage of high irradiance regions. NX Horizon’s key mechanical and electrical components have generous 40” clearances above the ground, minimizing dirt, flooding, snow, and vegetation concerns.   Every NX Horizon row is monitored to ensure solar panels are positioned for maximum energy production.  NX Horizon is ETL certified to UL 3703 standards.  NX Horizon is available for systems at 600V, 1000V, and 1500V.
