NEXTracker™ announced to ship its single axis PV trackers to DEPCOM Power, a utility-scale solar EPC prvodier, for the 42MWdc Paw Paw Solar Facility in central Georgia. The construction has been commenced in June and is scheduled to be completed by the end of 2015.
"DEPCOM is excited to be deploying NEXTracker technology on this Georgia Power solar project. We believe this tracker represents an effective solution for utility-scale arrays, with faster installation speed, and reduced field wiring cost," said Jim Lamon, CEO, DEPCOM Power.
The Paw Paw project, recently acquired by Southern Company subsidiary Georgia Power, is part of a 400 MW solar generation portfolio that Georgia Power is developing in the state. This project is coming to fruition thanks to the Georgia Power Advanced Solar Initiative.
Global demand for solar trackers continues to expand rapidly as the market has transitioned to higher irradiance locations where trackers deliver outstanding increases in power production. NEXTracker's technology is proven to be a cost-effective solution to maximize solar project returns.
