We’re creative, collaborative, committed problem-solvers from diverse backgrounds. And we’re on a mission to be the world’s leading energy solutions company delivering the most intelligent, reliable, and productive solar power for future generations.
Nextracker’s smart solar tracker solutions for PV projects of all sizes transform plant performance with advanced data monitoring and analysis software and services.
Experienced Executive Team
Solar industry veteran Dan Shugar and his team founded Nextracker because no solar trackers met their requirements. So they redesigned, engineered and built an innovative system from the ground up. From the company’s earliest days, we’ve brought together some of the best minds in the business, and our people collectively represent hundreds of years of PV and solar tracker experience. Team members come from backgrounds in manufacturing, logistics, development, finance, engineering, construction and asset management, while our deep talent bench also features experienced interdisciplinary professionals from software, power electronics, motion control and other technical industries. When we say we understand your wants and needs, we speak from experience.
Consistent Market Leadership
Nextracker has been the number-one global market-share solar tracker company for five years and counting, according to global research firms WoodMackenzie and IHS Markit. We have delivered or fulfilled more than 35 GW of smart solar trackers for projects on five continents, including some of the largest solar farms in the world. Our TrueCapture and NX Navigator smart monitoring and control software platforms have revolutionized tracker performance, and represent our commitment to continuous innovation.
Bankability Backed By Flex
Founded in 2013, we’ve operated since 2015 as an independent subsidiary of Flextronics International Ltd. (Flex). Our Flex parent is a $26 billion company with more than 200,000 employees worldwide, offering a strong balance sheet and a worldwide supply chain and distribution network. With Flex’s 100 manufacturing sites in 30 countries, Nextracker delivers unparalleled scalability, reliability, and bankability.
Solar Industry Firsts by Nextracker
It’s no accident that Nextracker leads the industry in patented features and capabilities that increase plant performance and reduce costs for EPCs, developers and asset owners. Innovation and a customer-first attitude are embedded in our DNA.
When the company’s founders set out to redefine then-existing single-axis solar tracker technology, they started with a clean slate, designing and engineering a ground-breaking system with many factors in mind: durable, consistent performance in many site conditions; ease and speed of installation, commissioning and maintenance; self-adjusting algorithms for remote control; advanced monitoring and digital connectivity—all of which would lead to superior performance and lower overall cost of ownership to operate the plant.
Here are some examples of our technological and industry leadership:
• Self-powered, decentralized architecture with no hard links between the rows. This allows each row to be commissioned in advance of site power and simplifies operational maintenance.
• Advanced monitoring, control and commissioning software that speeds time to market, increases energy yield, and enhances plant performance.
• Extensive study of dynamic wind analysis and safety stowing, delivering major benefits in uptime and long-term durability.
• Integrated bifacial design features such as optimized mounting rails, large height-to-width aspect ratio, and spacing between the bearing and piers that maximize rear-side irradiance, eliminate structural shading and reduce mismatch loss factors.
• Data analytics-driven cradle-to-grave global services and support, from presale engineering work to construction support and project management to commissioning to O&M and asset management.
The founders’ vision and the team’s efforts have paid off. Nextracker has delivered or fulfilled more than 35 GW of tracker systems worldwide, more than any other tracker company.
