Soltec is supplying complete tracker equipment to the Eagle Point solar PV plant located in the state of Oregon by leading project developer Cypress Creek Renewables. The 491 complete solar trackers manufactured by Soltec present a market-leading cost advantage. The trackers will be produced and shipped in less than 40 days to the project site on the outskirts of Medford, near the Rogue Valley International Airport.
Soltec’s solar trackers require the fewest piles per megawatt and keep earth grading operations to a minimum, preserving the site’s wetlands and fragile ecosystem,” reported José María Lozano, Engineering Global Director at Soltec. The independent-row, short tracker site-fill advantages allowed the plant to be designed with the trackers arranged diagonally, rather than in a straight line, to make the most of the available land.
The Eagle Point power plant is expected to generate more than 22 GWh of clean energy annually, equivalent to avoiding 16,000 tons of CO2 emissions each year.
