Array Technologies to Supply Solar Trackers for Over 750 MWdc Solar Project in Ohio
On November 7, 2022, Array Technologies received a contract to provide EDF Renewables North America, one of the biggest developers of renewable energy in North America, with its DuraTrack solar trackers.
Array will provide its DuraTrack solar trackers for a nearly 4,500-acre project in Ohio with a capacity of over 750 megawatts. Over 1.4 million modules will be installed in the project’s over 13,000 tracker rows. They anticipated the project to be among the biggest solar projects in the US, and it will generate enough clean energy each year to power 116,000 typical Ohio homes.
Array will start delivering trackers in January 2023, and we expect the project to be operational in 2024. Blattner Energy, a company that belongs to the Quanta Services group, is in charge of the engineering, procurement, and construction. Blattner is a multifaceted renewable energy engineering contractor that offers innovative solutions and teamwork across the country. EDF Renewables, an independent power producer, is developing the project.
“By winning this project, Array is further solidifying its position as a leader in the utility-scale solar industry and demonstrating our ability to consistently deliver quality products on time for our customers,” said Kevin Hostetler, CEO of Array Technologies. “This project is a win-win-win for the county in Ohio, delivering clean energy into the local power grid, providing hundreds of new construction jobs, and generating a revenue stream from the lease agreements and tax revenue all while boosting economic development in the area and serving as a STEM resource for students interested in science, sustainability and environmental learning.”
