Unlocking the Potential of Small-Scale Utility Solar with Array Technologies

Across Australia, small-scale utility solar projects are emerging as a powerhouse of potential. These projects generally offer more geographic adaptability, greater cost-effectiveness, and faster completion timelines, making renewable energy more accessible across the continent.

But what if we could make small-scale utility solar projects even more productive? This blog post delves into how Array can help transform the landscape of small-scale utility solar in Australia and what makes Array an indispensable tool for EPCs, developers, and investors alike.


The Rise of Small-Scale Utility Solar in Australia

Australia’s vast landscapes and abundant sunshine make it an ideal setting for solar energy projects. Recently, there has been a significant uptick in the interest and development of small-scale utility solar installations. As more of these solar installations come online, they offer a myriad of benefits, including:

  • bolstering the grid’s resilience,
  • promoting decentralised power generation, and
  • reducing transmission losses.

But the question remains: How can we amplify their output and efficiency?


Array Technologies: The Key to Unlocking Solar Potential

Solar trackers use cutting-edge technology to follow the sun’s path throughout the day as it rises and sets to maximise exposure and increase energy production. There’s a reason Array is a global leader in producing reliable solar trackers: our solutions are specifically designed to optimize the performance of utility-scale solar—be it large or small-scale.


Designed for Durability and Efficiency

Array’s solar trackers are not just about optimizing sunlight exposure, they’re built to withstand Australia’s uniquely challenging weather conditions. From the scorching heat of the Outback to coastal regions battered by strong winds, these trackers are engineered for resilience.

Array’s patented passive wind-stow system eliminates the need for communication systems, batteries, and additional power sources while ensuring reliable performance in any location. This innovative feature allows trackers to adjust based on actual wind loads experienced by each individual row, placing the system in a safer position during wind events.


Cutting Costs, Boosting Yields

The true beauty of Array’s technology lies in its ability to enhance energy yield while driving down the levelized cost of electricity (LCOE). The integration of smart technology enables real-time adjustments to panel positioning, helping to optimize energy capture throughout the day.

With a capacity exceeding 100 modules per row and innovative features like terrain adaptability and zero scheduled maintenance, Array’s trackers are redefining efficiency. The advanced tracking capabilities of our trackers, coupled with our SmarTrack™ solutions for backtracking and diffuse lighting conditions, ensure that small-scale projects are not just viable, but highly profitable.
