NEXTracker Delivers State-of Art Trackers for 223 Megawatts of SunEdison Projects in Latin America


FREMONT, CA, FEB. 2, 2015 – NEXTracker, Inc., designer and manufacturer of the world's most advanced single axis photovoltaic (PV) trackers, announced that it shipped a supply of single axis trackers to SunEdison, Inc. (NYSE: SUNE), a leading solar technology manufacturer and provider of solar energy services, which were used in the construction of some of Latin America's largest utility-scale solar projects, totaling 223 megawatts. The trackers were deployed for SunEdison projects in Chile to support 142 megawatts, and in Honduras to support 81 megawatts.

"Our experience installing NEXTracker in our projects in Chile and Honduras has been excellent," stated Sasan Aminpour, Vice President of Global Operations for SunEdison. "SunEdison's engineering teams have conducted extensive assessments of NEXTracker's technology, and have concluded that it is a reliable and cost effective platform for our ground-mounted projects."

"We're thrilled to be partnering again with SunEdison, a visionary leader in solar," said Dan Shugar, CEO of NEXTracker.
"NEXTracker's higher energy yield and installation cost savings are helping developers maximize project financial returns in Latin America. NEXTracker's unimpeded row design also provides valuable cost savings for panel cleaning in the dusty Chilean desert, and minimizes site grading requirements."

SolarEdge Technologies - Solar Inverters, Power Optimizers and PV Monitoring

The SolarEdge PV inverter combines sophisticated digital control technology with efficient power conversion architecture to achieve superior solar power harvesting and best-in-class reliability. The fixed-voltage technology ensures the solar inverter is always working at its optimal input voltage over a wider range of string lengths and regardless of environmental conditions. A proprietary data monitoring receiver has been integrated into the inverter and aggregates the power optimizer performance data from each PV module. This data can be transmitted to the web and accessed via the SolarEdge Monitoring Portal for performance analysis, fault detection and troubleshooting of PV systems.
