Solar FlexRack provides single-axis trackers to Connecticut venture portfolio
Solar FlexRack, a division of the US-based metal and PV assembly and solar tracker solutions provider, has supplied its TDP 2.0 solar trackers for a portfolio of solar distributed projects in Connecticut. As part of Solar FlexRack’s tracker growth phase in the Northeast, the solar projects are being developed by TRITEC Americas, a developer, financier and asset manager of commercial and industrial solar PV and energy storage systems.
TRITEC Americas is a subsidiary of the TRITEC Group, a global solar services company founded in 1987 with branches throughout Europe, South America and the USA. TRITEC contracted Swinerton Renewable Energy to design, procure and manage the portfolio and will enter into an agreement with SOLV, a wholly owned subsidiary of Swinerton Renewables, to provide operational and maintenance services for the portfolio. The first of several projects under construction is a 1.2 MW system near Putnam.
“We are excited to partner with SOLV Construction Management Services to support Swinerton’s new service group. Project efficiency is an important part of what we do, so it’s great to work with people who share this passion, “said Steve Daniel, Executive Vice President of Solar FlexRack.
These DG solar projects are small in size and ideal for providing the local Connecticut community with clean, affordable energy. By using the single-axis tracker system from Solar FlexRack, production is further increased. In addition, it contributes to the state portfolio standard of 48% renewable energy by 2030.
“Solar FlexRack works closely with SOLV CM Services to deliver high quality projects that add value for our customers,” said Craig Mayer, Director of Construction Management at SOLV. “Your team helps reduce project risk and delivers a reliable solar tracker and service package for the benefit of our customers.”
Power from the portfolio, including the Putnam solar project, will be purchased from Bristol under a long-term power purchase agreement. The systems will generate over 7,950,000 kWh of clean, renewable energy for Bristol residents in their first full year of operation. Additionally, the projects participate in Eversource’s ZREC program, which will help meet the utility’s RPS goals.
