Array Technologies Surpasses 80 MWs in NM
World leader in solar tracker design and manufacturing has been creating jobs in Albuquerque for over 23 years
Albuquerque, NM – 8/31/12 – Array Technologies has delivered over 80 megawatts of DuraTrack HZ™ solar tracking systems for solar electric plants installed throughout New Mexico, comprising more than two-thirds of all solar development in the state. This significant milestone—achieved from a local company that manufactures its solar products in Albuquerque—represents an important step in developing the abundant potential for PV in New Mexico.
Through its Albuquerque operations, Array Technologies has become the world leader in solar tracker design and manufacturing.
The company was started in the Land of Enchantment over 23 years ago by founder and president Ron Corio. Over the last six years, company sales have markedly increased, with business booming despite the economic downturn. The company continues to post impressive growth, especially with the release of its innovative and popular DuraTrack HZ™ utility-scale solar tracking system.
While many other businesses have moved their operations overseas, Mr. Corio has always held a strong conviction and pride in manufacturing in Albuquerque.
What began as a small venture with few employees grew steadily throughout the years, with additional staff and expanded facilities. Array Technologies is now headquartered in the industrial zone near Jefferson and I-25, and employs over one-hundred-twenty-five New Mexicans (and a few employees outside the state and the U.S.). Additionally, for every job created at its Albuquerque facilities, many more American jobs are supported in Array’s supply chain pipeline.
As Array Technologies continues to invest in New Mexico’s economic future, it is committed to expanding solar energy development in the state—and is set to surpass 1 gigawatt (1,000 megawatts) of tracking installations by the end of this calendar year.
