San Francisco, USA – March 11, 2015 - Exosun, leading provider of solar tracking technologies and associated plant engineering services, announces the commissioning of its solar trackers on the Lone Valley solar park located in the western Mojave desert, San Bernardino county, California. This 30 MWAC project, consisting of two adjacent solar plants, represents Exosun's first contract completion in North America, and also marks Exosun's first successful collaboration with the world's third largest renewable energy producer EDP Renewables.


The Lone Valley solar park is equipped with 262 of Exosun's Exotrack® HZ horizontal single-axis trackers, which orient over 120,000 photovoltaic modules toward the sun to increase electricity production up to 25 percent compared to a fixed-tilt installation.
