4.6 MWs Shipped for West Kern Water District
System near Taft, CA to replace gas engines that pump water for residents
Albuquerque, NM – 6/27/12 – Array Technologies has announced the delivery of nine site DuraTrack™ HZ systems totaling 4.6 MWs for the West Kern Water District near Taft, CA. Constructed by Signal Energy, the DuraTrack™ HZ system will replace gas engines used to pump water 800 feet uphill from artificial ground water banks in the San Joaquin Valley Basin.
The DuraTrack™ HZ tracker saves money by generating energy at a levelized cost for the lifetime of the project, while utility rates continue to rise over time. The systems also enable the district to avoid regulatory hurdles of fossil fuel emissions with the San Joaquin Valley Air Pollution Control District, a concern in a place where surrounding mountains trap air pollution in the valley.
Array Technologies’ DuraTrack™ HZ tracking system provides the robust performance, long-term dependability and reliable functionality that has made it the most widely deployed tracker today, with over 1 GW installed or under commission worldwide.
