The Array Changing Technologies award showcases more than 40 of the year’s top solar innovations, from new modules and inverters to the latest innovations in monitoring software and mounting systems.
A jury of independent experts from across the global PV industry picked through this year’s bumper crop of entries to select a few choice products as particularly worthy of recognition, thanks to their potential to solve problems for industry players, push more watts out of solar installations or bring down the overall cost of deploying more solar.
NEXTracker was selected as 2018’s Array Changing Technologies
Jurors were impressed by this innovation’s ability to provide a verified gain in energy production from an installation, and to maximize ground coverage, whilst compensating for terrain and other factors.
“We are delighted to be selected by pv magazine for this year’s Array Changing Technologies 2018 award,” states Dan Shugar, NEXTracker CEO and founder. “With successful field deployments running in several countries totaling hundreds of megawatts, we’d like to thank our customers for collaborating with us, and proving that our TrueCapture smart control system can produce up to 6% more energy.”
NEXTracker relies on the SmartNexus IoT platform by Flex to implement the bi-directional pipeline needed to deliver data to and from the trackers securely through the internet.
