After deregulating the energy sector at the end of 2015, Mexico’s new paradigm has the market in flux. While it is unclear how it will shake out, opportunities for solar are opening up. In the absence of incentives, utility-scale solar projects will have to compete with conventional power — a challenge that we at NEXTracker embrace.
GTM Research predicts that if market rules play out well, solar could win as much as 500 MW generation capacity in two auctions in 2016. Developers will have to compete against wind and natural gas, however, which makes a strong case for our innovative trackers that reduce cost of ownership significantly. Our NEXTrackers generate up to 30 percent more yield compared to fixed-tilt solar, which gives us an advantage in the creation of a viable solar power plant.
Leveraging Flextronics’ manufacturing presence in Mexico and partnering with world-class suppliers, we can deliver trackers “Made in Mexico” for utility scale projects. These agreements allow us to secure high quality components, reduce material lead times, and complete projects faster.
As long as the playing field is leveled, we are game when it comes to compete with other power generation sources. Because that’s what we’re striving for: offering the most advanced clean power plant of the future.

NEXTracker Ships Trackers to Buenavista Renewables’s 16MW Mexican Project
EnergyTrend, March 3, 2015
We are proud to be the first developer to deploy NEXTracker's advanced horizontal tracking technology in Mexico. Bankability and speed are key concerns for our projects and we were impressed with NEXTracker's proven ability to execute on very large projects in other Latin American countries. NEXTracker's highly experienced team supported us throughout the design process and optimized our site layout for maximum power capacity and performance
