Fully Ballasted Solar Tracker and Cleaning Robots to be Implemented in Chile

Alion Energy Supplies Solar Trackers and Cleaning System for iEnergía's 3.6MW Calle Larga Project near Santiago de Chile

Alion Energy announces supply of its StormTracker and SPOT robotic cleaning system for iEnergía's 3.6MW Calle Larga project. Located approximately 75km north of Santiago, Chile, the project broke ground in the end of May and is expected to reach commercial operation in October. This project represents Alion's debut of its novel tracker and automated cleaning technologies in South America, following earlier projects in Mexico, USA, and India.


Alion Energy's StormTracker uses a ballasted foundation that simplifies construction and an elegant structural design that squeezes out substantial amounts of steel versus its competitors. Alion's robotic cleaning system delivers reliable, high-quality cleaning at low cost with a robotic vehicle that uses the concrete foundation as a vehicle track.

Based in Richmond, CA, USA, Alion Energy offers its solar tracker and robotic cleaning systems globally to reduce the levelized cost of solar projects, especially for those challenged by difficult ground conditions or panel soiling.

US Battery - Solar RE L16XC Renewable Energy Battery

Our batteries have Xtreme thick plates with (XC Diamond Plate Technology) added to them. They have been designed for hours of heavy discharge each day, followed by a fast recharge during the daylight hours. Very few batteries can take the grueling deep discharge-recharge cycle every day for long periods of time. U.S. Battery has proven time and time again that our solar battery line can stand up to this type of battery torture day in and day out for years to come. When you demand reliable energy storage count on U.S. Battery every time!
