MECASOLAR travels to Solar Power Mexico to consolidate its leadership in this country

The multinational has supplied over 38MWp in horizontal solar trackers in Mexico.

*MECASOLAR is attending the 3rd edition of Solar Power Mexico on 28 and 29 May, the leading solar power event for trade members, which PROINSO is also attending.


*Travelling to Mexico once again this year, MECASOLAR wants to strengthen its presence and consolidate its leadership in a country that has set the goal to have 35% power from renewable sources by 2026.

*Mexico, where MECASOLAR delivered a total 38.5MWp in horizontal single-axis trackers through April 2014, is one of the Latin American markets with the highest number of opportunities for the solar industry.

13 May 2014. The companies in the OPDE Group MECASOLAR and PROINSO will take part on 28 and 29 May in the 3rd edition of Solar Power Mexico, the leading show in the solar power industry to take place in Mexico City. MECASOLAR, a multinational firm specialising in the design and manufacture of solar trackers, fixed structures for ground- and roof-mounted installations, and foundation screws for PV solar farms, is attending the event with the aim to strengthen its leadership in Mexico.

This country has set the goal to increase renewable energy generation to 35% by 2026. Currently, it is one of the Latin American countries with the most opportunities for the solar industry.

For this reason, MECASOLAR is travelling to Mexico with the aim of bringing closer to this North American market some of its solutions, such as the horizontal single-axis tracker, whose supplies to solar projects in the country amounted to 38.5MWp through April 2014.

According to MECASOLAR sources, the 144kWp horizontal single-axis tracker is a modular, low-height structure characterised by simple assembly and higher output, and requiring no welding on location, which means higher return on investment for solar PV projects.

A number of variants of this tracker were launched in 2012 and sold very well around the world, Mexico included. This tracker can have up to 12 axes moved by a single motor, and each axis can carry up to 48 modules, 11.6kW per axis. This means that each horizontal tracker with a single motor can reach a power of 144kWp and a solar panel area of 960m2.

To date, MECASOLAR has manufactured and delivered 400MW in solar trackers and structures to solar PV plants in more than 40 countries in all five continents.

SolarEdge Technologies - EV Charging Single Phase Inverter

The SolarEdge PV inverter combines sophisticated digital control technology with efficient power SolarEdge's EV charging single phase inverter offers homeowners the ability to charge electric vehicles up to six times faster than a standard Level 1 charger through an innovative solar boost mode that utilizes grid and PV charging simultaneously. This product is the world's first EV charger with an integrated PV inverter. Reducing the hassle of installing separately a standalone EV charger and a PV inverter, the EV charging inverter eliminates the need for additional wiring, conduit and a breaker installation. By installing an EV charger that is integrated with an inverter, no additional dedicated circuit breaker is needed, saving space and ruling out a potential upgrade to the main distribution panel. Whether you own an EV now or just want to be EV-ready, future-proof your home with SolarEdge.
