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.
