Solar tracker giant Array Technologies and EDF Renewables North America, one of the largest renewable energy developers in North America, announced a new partnership that will see nearly two gigawatts of single-axis solar tracking equipment supplied to EDF by Array Technologies over the coming years.
“As long-term owners of solar projects featuring DuraTrack HZ v3 single-axis solar trackers, we value reliability, high uptime, and excellent performance over the life of the solar project,” said Kathy Lin, Vice President, Solar and Storage Technology at EDF Renewables.
Array’s market-leading technology was selected for these projects because of its flexibility and adaptability to fit projects that are yet to be fully specified that EDF Renewables has in their development pipeline.
“The partnership between Array Technologies and EDF Renewables is a testament to the strength and success of a mature and thriving solar market,” said Jeff Krantz, Chief Commercial Officer at Array Technologies. “This deal represents a significant milestone for our company’s continued robust growth, and the success of the innovative solutions Array continues to produce.”
The majority of utility-scale solar projects utilize single-axis solar trackers. In regions with high solar irradiance, trackers can produce a 20 to 30 percent increase in energy output over fixed-tilt systems. The continued adoption of Array Technologies’ DuraTrack HZ v3 solar trackers comes down to economics and reliability over the lifetime of the solar asset.
EDF Renewables is one of the largest renewable energy developers in North America with 16 gigawatts of wind, solar, and storage projects developed throughout the U.S., Canada, and Mexico.
