Why the Distributed Generation market requires unique tracker solutions
Demand for PV solar-based distributed generation (DG) – including commercial and industrial (CI) and Community Solar – continues to grow in the US. DG developers are looking for robust tracker solutions providing greater energy returns and allowing them to work within short project development and build cycles.
DG projects have inherently shorter development cycles than utility-scale solar projects. As such, DG developers require superior responsiveness and faster lead times to achieve federal investment tax credit (ITC)-driven end-of-year deadlines. Permitting, interconnection and other up-stream development activities can also lead to squeezed time frames for tracker procurement and installation. Proven single axis tracker (SAT) technology, superior manufacturer responsiveness, and fast tracker delivery and installation are critical.
How DG Solutions addresses these needs
FTC Solar and AUI Partners are combining proven tracker technology and building core capabilities and services to address the DG market demands.
Proven Tracker Technology- Voyager 2P Tracker
Voyager is a next-generation 2P single-axis tracker providing industry-leading ease of installation, performance, and reliability.
Superior Design Flexibility
4-string architecture leads to an optimized system with a ground cover ratio from 30 to 60 percent, 10-degree (or 17.5%) N/S slope tolerance, and maximized megawatt per acre capacity
Lowest Installed Cost
Voyager has the fastest module installation process in the world and up to 46% fewer posts than 1P designs resulting in lower costs and man hours.
Designed for Reliability
Our self-powered drive system requires no auxiliary power or communications systems while providing data, communication, and power redundancy. Over-the-air software updates enable seamless upgrades.
Maximize Energy Capture
“SunPathTM recovers energy lost from row-to-row shading on undulating and land-constrained sites while maximizing production on overcast days. Meet revenue and production targets with confidence.”
High customer responsiveness
AUI’s dedicated resources, supported by FTC, provide leading customer service and execution.
Faster lead times
We achieve faster lead times through a twofold strategy:
