NEXTracker Partners with CleanMax Solar
NEXTracker™, a Flex company, announced that it has partnered with CleanMax Solar, to supply 30 MW of its advanced NX Horizon single-axis trackers to a project in Tamil Nadu. The grid-connected project will deliver energy to a major IT consumer in Chennai, under a long-term contract with CleanMax Solar. Set up under the Group Captive Scheme, 100 per cent of the electricity generated will be consumed in Tamil Nadu. The system is expected to be operational by the end of Q1 2017.
“We are proud to be partnering with India’s leader in the corporate solar market, CleanMax Solar. Our advanced solar tracker technology and experience in the India market will complement their efforts to accelerate India’s private sector adoption of renewable power generation,” said Dan Shugar, CEO, NEXTracker.
Traditionally a non-tracker market, India’s solar tracker market is expected to grow exponentially by 2021, amounting to 31% of ground mount projects, up from 7% in 2016 (GTM Research). NEXTracker recently supplied India’s largest solar tracker project to date – the 105 MW Adani Power Plant in Punjab.
