Solar FlexRack, a division of Northern States Metals and an innovative leader in photovoltaic mounting and solar tracker solutions, announced a new compatible solar tracker solution for First Solar’s Series 6 modules. The solution allows First Solar’s latest technologically advanced modules to be quickly and easily mounted to Solar FlexRack’s advanced solar tracker technology.
Solar FlexRack’s new TDP 2.0 Turnkey Solar Tracker with BalanceTrac increases the size of modules per row (up to 72) and is optimized for 1000 or 1,500-volt solar modules. The new design lowers wear and tear on the tracker components and allows for shorter piles, just a few of the cost-saving features of the new product line.
“Solar FlexRack has worked closely with First Solar to develop this new solution for First Solar’s Series 6 modules. Series 6 is on track to be one of the most cost-efficient and highest performing modules in the industry. Combining these two technologies will deliver a solar power generation plant with exceptional performance and reliability,” said Steve Daniel, Executive Vice President of Solar FlexRack.
Solar FlexRack’s thin film solutions include TDP Solar Trackers and fixed tilt solutions for First Solar Series 4 and 6 and the latest Self Powered Solution for their solar trackers. Each solution offers a different set of benefits providing solar engineers with the design options they need to ensure their solar sites’ will perform to plan.
