Array Technologies

Array Technologies, Inc., (ATI) a leader in the solar tracking industry, is partnering with Affordable Solar to install trackers at Facebook’s upcoming data center located in Los Lunas, N.M. Array has been selected to provide trackers for three 10 MW-AC sites to help Facebook’s newest data center be powered 100 percent by renewable energy.

“With decades of innovation and experience under our belt, we’re excited to see large global brands like Facebook adopting renewable energy solutions,” said Ron Corio, CEO of Array Technologies. “Solar technology should be designed and built to withstand the test of time. Array is proud to deliver the only time-proven solar tracker to utility-scale project owners around the world.”

Alongside engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) firm Affordable Solar, Array will install trackers throughout 2017 and complete the first of three 10 MW-AC installations by the beginning of 2018. Affordable Solar was awarded the contract by Public Service Company of New Mexico (PNM) to build the three sites.

Affordable Solar President, Kevin Basselleck, says “We’ll be partnering with Array Technologies, an Albuquerque-based manufacturer of the tracking systems that allow the solar modules to follow the sun throughout the day. They are a global leader in solar trackers and a tremendous local success story. We’re proud to deploy more of their systems right here in New Mexico.”
