PV Tracker Reliability: The Future Impact on O&M Costs»

3/16/17 –

In 2013, 40% of new utility-scale solar projects used solar tracking systems to optimize the performance of photovoltaic (PV) panels. In 2017, that number is expected to grow to about 80%. Simply put, solar trackers are quickly becoming the new normal for utility-scale solar projects. As this trend continues, the solar industry will turn its…

Solar Energy and Agriculture: What We Learned from the World Ag Expo»

2/24/17 –

Many people may think of agriculture and renewables as two distant topics with very little overlap in between. After all, an array of solar panels or wind turbines isn’t exactly the first thing you expect to see on a farm. However, there is a natural fit between the two industries, with many early adopters and…

How trackers can make or break a solar project»

1/30/17 –

By Ron Corio, founder and CEO of Array Technologies Inc. While the global growth of solar installations is expected to slow in 2017, the adoption of solar trackers for utility-scale projects is expected to continue to boom—and for good reason. By dramatically improving energy production, solar trackers meaningfully improve the overall economics of solar power…

All solar trackers are not created equally»

1/5/17 –

Solar tracker architectures are very different in multiple ways. One important difference is how they are designed to handle structural wind and snow loads: for utilities looking for the lowest cost of ownership, selecting trackers that are robust and reliable enough to withstand inclement weather without failing over their 30-year lifespan is imperative. It’s for…

Following the sun: A brief history of solar trackers»

12/2/16 –

What do hot air balloons, Robin Williams, and African poaching patrols have in common? They’re all part of the rich history of solar tracker technology, as well as the legacy of solar tracker pioneer Array Technologies Inc. (ATI). Adapting to the twists and turns of the “solar coaster” is what has shaped ATI through the…

Reducing Failure Components In Solar Tracking»

11/8/16 –

BY BOB BELLEMARE   On April 20, 2010, a single device called a blowout preventer (BOP) led to one of the worst environmental and financial disasters ever recorded. The BOP failed to seal a well shut after the explosion on the Deepwater Horizon oil rig, resulting in 11 deaths and millions of gallons of oil flowing…

by SOLAR CHOICE STAFF  Solar Choice, the developer of some of the largest planning-approved solar farm projects in Australia, recently published an informative piece on Array Technologies’ DuraTrack HZ V3 technology. In addition to its large-scale projects, Solar Choice is also a comparison and brokerage service for residential and commercial rooftop solar installations, having assisted over…

Solar Power Plant Reliability – Why Should We Care?»

5/1/16 –

Thomas Conroy, President, Array Technologies, Inc. Solar power plants have taken their place alongside coal, natural gas, nuclear, and wind as legitimate and valuable generation resources. Solar comprised 29.4% of new electric generating capacity in the U.S. in 2015, exceeding the total for natural gas for the first time. 1 The acceptance of solar by…

Array Technologies Tracks Extreme Conditions To Engineer System Improvements»

2/23/16 –

When Albuquerque, N.M.-based Array Technologies Inc. (ATI) unveiled its DuraTrack HZ v3 single-axis tracker last year, it was the culmination of an engineering process that sought to make the systems more survivable in the field – particularly under conditions of high wind and snow loads. John Williamson, ATI’s engineering manager, says both the new and…
