Pacifico & Choluteca I/II

Choluteca, Honduras,

Overview

 

Three sites in in the Choluteca region of Honduras comprise the largest renewable energy project to date in Central America. Bringing solar into the hot, quickly expanding Honduran solar market poses some risks, especially when your aim is to produce the first large scale, grid-connected utility project in the country. But when you bring together two industry leaders, the only possible outcome is success.

NEXTracker Advantages

 

The NEXTracker120’s high energy yield and lower install costs help propel the financial gains made in this industry-leading development; fewer piers, minimal site preparation and refined construction practices translate directly into a better bottom line.

Cost savings don’t just stop after construction. NEXTracker’s independent rows quickly move into a clean stow position and significantly reduce operation costs by easing module cleaning. A maintenance vehicle can swiftly move down alternate rows and clean two rows at the same time. This reduction in maintenance minimizes down time and keeps the high energy output flowing. Our streamlined, self-grounded design simplifies installation and minimizes the need for trenching and grading—some of the most costly and protracted installation steps. A swift mechanical installation translates to a quicker time to tracking, commissioning and energy delivery.
