Largest Solar Farm of its Kind in North America Completed

AllEarth Renewables Installs 366 of Its Innovative Solar Trackers

SOUTH BURLINGTON, Vt., Sept. 29, 2014 -- AllEarth Renewables and Claire Solar Partners have announced the completion of a 2.2MW solar tracker farm in South Burlington, Vt. JA Solar provided multi-crystalline 260 watt PID resistant modules for the project.


The project is the largest in North America to utilize distributed inverters and dual-axis trackers to maximize production.

Claire Solar utilized 366 AllSun Trackers and highly efficient modules from JA Solar, to further maximize the farm's output. The ground-mounted pre-engineered solar trackers, which track the sun throughout the day, produce up to 30 percent more energy than fix ground-mounted systems. JA Solar's multi-crystalline 260 watt modules outperform the peers' modules by 5-10 watts in terms of power rating. JA Solar's PV module, well-known for its high reliability, high conversion efficiency and high power output, outperforms the industry average by 5-30 watts in terms of power rating.

The project was constructed under Vermont's Sustainably Priced Energy Enterprise Development (SPEED) standard-offer program and will produce over 3 million kilowatt hours of emissions-free energy a year. AllEarth Renewables also served as the EPC for the project.

In 2011, AllEarth Renewables utilized their solar trackers for a 2.1MW solar farm across the road from the Claire Solar site.
