Exosun to supply 6.8 MW of solar trackers for a PV plant in Oregon, USA

Tracker installation, executed by Exosun, will begin in September 2015, with commissioning planned for November 2015.

San Francisco, USA, August 27, 2015. Exosun, leading provider of perfected solar tracking technologies for utility-scale ground-mounted solar plants, has inked a contract with a major clean energy producer to supply and install its trackers on a 6.8 MWp PV plant located in the North American state of Oregon.


The solar plant, installed over 40 acres of high desert land, will be equipped with 44 Exotrack® HZ horizontal single-axis solar trackers. They will support 21,964 PV modules, orienting them toward the sun throughout the day to significantly increase energy yield.

In order to lower transportation costs and time, and contribute to local employment, the majority of tracker components will be manufactured by American and Mexican high quality suppliers, rigorously selected by Exosun.

Tracker installation, executed by Exosun, will begin in September 2015, with commissioning planned for November 2015.

"We are very pleased with this challenging project in Oregon and by the rapid response and schedule our team was able to formulate," comments Jeb Seder, Managing Director of Exosun Inc. "Our Exotrack HZ single-axis trackers have been designed for maximized plant design flexibility, quick and cost-effective construction and minimal OPEX. This, coupled with our extensive tracker installation experience, is what convinced our client to work with us."

On September 15, 16, and 17, Exosun will be exhibiting at the Solar Power International trade show, Anaheim convention center, California, booth #5510.

TRA SNOW AND SUN - SOLAR TILE MOUNT

TRA SNOW AND SUN - SOLAR TILE MOUNT

You haven't installed a tile mount that is easier to install than the Solar Tile Mount manufactured by TRA Snow and Sun. Solar Tile Mount is used on all tile roof profiles: flat, mid, and high. It is made in the USA of aluminum alloy for strength and excellent corrosion resistance. Solar Tile Mount is built to allow more ease in installation with more rise from the tile surface to the rail for better air flow below panels. The adjustable base is longer than most allowing attachment 6" to the left or right to have the bracket in the base of the pan of the tile and still fasten to the rafter. Solar Tile Mount is adjustable for counter batten systems from ¾" to 3". The horizontal rail is directly above base fasteners giving greater uplift resistance than any other system. For superior waterproofing apply TRA Snow and Sun's butyl backed VersaFlash aluminum flashing. No tile flashing is needed on top of the tile for greater labor and material cost savings.
