11 MW DuraTrack HZ™ Tracking System Completed by Array Technologies in Canada
Sandhurst, Ontario system meets province’s FIT program
Albuquerque, NM– 3/15/12 – Array Technologies has announced the completion of 11 MW of trackers near Sandhurst, Ontario, Canada. The system, which met the province’s Feed-in-Tariff (FIT) program, fulfilled requirements for domestic content production and created jobs in the community that will benefit from the clean solar energy produced onsite.
Array Technologies’ DuraTrack HZ™ tracking system was chosen for the project, as its ability to maximize PV coverage on uneven terrain or between irregular site boundaries makes installation easy. For a maximum return on investment, the trackers ensure up to a 25% net energy gain over fixed-rack applications.
The site is owned and operated by SunEdison, and was constructed by Canadian EPC Naylor. The power generated will be used by the Ontario Power Authority under a power-purchasing agreement.
