The Solar Energy Industries Association (SEIA), the national trade association of the U.S. solar energy industry, has announced the addition of NEXTracker, a single-axis solar tracker supplier, to SEIA’s board of directors.
“NEXTracker is a globally recognized company with a strong track record of success, and we’re looking forward to the keen insight they’ll bring to our board,” says Abigail Ross Hopper, SEIA’s newly appointed president and CEO. “Their passion and commitment to expanding the clean energy marketplace aligns perfectly with SEIA’s mission and vision.”
Founded in 2013, NEXTracker, a Flex company, has delivered trackers for hundreds of solar projects across five continents. Headquartered in Fremont, Calif., the company has offices in Mexico, India, Spain, China, Latin America and Australia.
“On behalf of NEXTracker and our parent company, Flex, I am extremely proud to be joining the SEIA board of directors,” says Dan Shugar, CEO of NEXTracker. “SEIA is a fundamental partner for both our companies to support the expansion of solar around the world. We are jointly focused on collaborating with our global partners and customers to advance the power plant of the future.”
“In joining SEIA’s board, we underscore our commitment to increasing the deployment of solar energy worldwide,” adds Shugar. “Solar is on the cusp of becoming the most economical energy resource; we’re keen to work with SEIA and the entire industry to achieve that goal.”
