SunEdison Signs Purchase Agreement with NEXTracker

June 16, 2014 By Linda Hardesty

SunEdison-Energy-ManageSunEdison awarded a master services agreement to NEXTracker for the purchase of up to 1.85 GW of trackers for the company’s ground-mounted projects worldwide over the next three years.

SunEdison says the NEXTracker platform helps its systems generate more power, while reducing the total cost of ownership. SunEdison currently has multiple solar power plants that use NEXTracker, including a 73 MW project under construction in Chile.

With far fewer piers and simplified assembly steps compared to linked-row trackers, NEXTracker says it is particularly well suited for “lean construction” techniques. Certified to UL 2703 requirements, NEXTracker eliminates separate grounding materials.
