EDF Renewables North America and Array Technologies Announce New Partnership Deal
Array Technologies awarded nearly two gigawatt pipeline from EDF Renewables.
SAN DIEGO – 12 December 2019 – Today Array Technologies, market leaders in single-axis solar tracking, and EDF Renewables North America, one of the largest renewable energy developers in North America, announced a new partnership between the two companies. This agreement provides EDF Renewables with nearly two gigawatts of reliable single-axis solar tracking equipment supplied by Array Technologies to deploy on projects they will build, own, and operate over the coming years.
“EDF Renewables is pleased to partner with Array Technologies to deliver competitively-priced, clean energy to its customers,” said Kathy Lin, Vice President, Solar and Storage Technology at EDF Renewables. “As long-term owners of solar projects featuring DuraTrack HZ v3 single-axis solar trackers, we value reliability, high uptime, and excellent performance over the life of the solar project.”
Array’s market-leading technology was selected for these projects because of its flexibility and adaptability to fit projects that are yet to be fully specified that EDF Renewables has in their development pipeline.
“The partnership between Array Technologies and EDF Renewables is a testament to the strength and success of a mature and thriving solar market,” said Jeff Krantz, Chief Commercial Officer at Array Technologies. “This deal represents a significant milestone for our company’s continued robust growth, and the success of the innovative solutions Array continues to produce.”
The majority of utility-scale solar projects utilize single-axis solar trackers. In regions with high solar irradiance, trackers can produce a 20 to 30 percent increase in energy output over fixed-tilt systems. The continued adoption of Array Technologies’ DuraTrack HZ v3 solar trackers comes down to economics and reliability over the lifetime of the solar asset.
EDF Renewables is one of the largest renewable energy developers in North America with 16 gigawatts of wind, solar, and storage projects developed throughout the U.S., Canada, and Mexico.
