Exosun enters the Mexican market by signing a tracker supply contract for a PV pilot project in Sonora

On May 19, 20 and 21, you will be able to meet Exosuns Mexican team at our booth C17, at the MIREC renewable energy event, Camino Real Polanco hotel, in Mexico City.

San Francisco, USA - May 12, 2015 - Exosun, leading provider of solar tracking technologies for utility-scale ground-mounted PV plants, has signed a tracker supply contract with Forza Systems, a Mexican solar PV commercial developer and EPC, for a 146 kWp pilot PV plant in Caborca, in the North Mexican state of Sonora. This pilot project is the first step to a multi-year master agreement between both companies.


The Exotrack HZ horizontal single-axis solar tracker will support 480 solar modules and orient them toward the sun to increase the plants energy production by 20%, in comparison with a fixed-tilt installation.

As part of its collaboration with Forza Systems, Exosun is committed to local manufacturing of its trackers.

In addition to tracker supply, Exosun will support its partner throughout the construction and commissioning phases and provide O&M training in order to ensure optimal performance of the
Exotrackâ HZ.

"We are excited to initiate our partnership with Forza Systems in Mexico. Installed on desert land, our pilot project in Mexico will be an important showcase for Exosun in this country with huge market potential for solar trackers. Committed to accelerating our clients ROI, it will allow us to demonstrate the flexibility, reliability and ease of installation of our technology, as well as our support service capabilities", comments Frédéric Conchy, President of Exosun.

Tracker commissioning of the pilot project, which will generate 350,000 kWh annually and save 134 tons of CO2 per year [1], is scheduled for end July 2015.

On May 19, 20 and 21, you will be able to meet Exosuns Mexican team at our booth C17, at the MIREC renewable energy event, Camino Real Polanco hotel, in Mexico City.

Two pole SB® connectors set the standard for DC power distribution and battery connections

Two pole SB® connectors set the standard for DC power distribution and battery connections

Based off the design pioneered by Anderson in 1953, the two pole SB® connectors set the standard for DC power distribution and battery connections. SB connectors feature a rugged one-piece plastic housing using stainless steel springs to retain the contacts and create the "contact force" that provides extremely low resistance enabling greater electrical efficiency. The SB connectors are also genderless (flip one 180 degrees and they will mate to each other) reducing the customer's bill of materials and providing greater economies of scale when purchasing. The SB series of connectors range in size from SB50 to the SB350. Each family size offers color-coded, mechanically keyed housings designed to prevent both visually and physically cross-mating devices with different voltages. All the connectors are UL rated to 600 volts, so the keys and colors are just identifiers to prevent accidents. Contacts are traditionally Silver plated to minimize electrical resistance while offering supreme durability and reliability.
