Solar tracking system company Array Technologies Inc. (ATI) and community solar developer SunShare have announced the commissioning of the Jefferson County Community Solar Garden, located near Arvada, Colo. The 1.5 MW project features ATI’s DuraTrack HZ v3 single-axis solar tracking technology.
ATI says single-axis trackers are gaining traction among community solar developers, and Luke Rickard, project manager for SunShare, adds, “Single-axis trackers increase the production of SunShare’s solar gardens as compared to fixed structures, putting more solar energy onto the grid and delivering more savings to our customers.”
“Making solar energy accessible for organizations such as The City of Arvada and the Green Mountain Water and Sanitation District is a truly unique position,” states ATI President Thomas Conroy. “Offering municipalities, businesses and residential stakeholders the opportunity to reap the benefits of tracked community solar energy will drive residential and commercial solar to future success.”
