FTC Solar will be providing its Voyager tracker to Moss Solar, an engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) company, which has been contracted by a Tier 1 U.S. developer to construct the solar plus storage facility.

The project is an innovative solar and energy storage project located in Maricopa County, Arizona. It will have a capacity of up to 504 megawatts DC of clean, renewable, solar power, combined with 260 megawatts AC of energy storage. The project represents a significant capital investment in Arizona beyond PV panels and batteries.

The project will utilize FTC Solar’s 2P Voyager+ tracker that optimizes energy capture while simultaneously reducing man-hours and equipment needed for installation. The project is scheduled to begin operations in 2023.

Recently, FTC Solar announced that it had been awarded its first project in Africa since entering the market earlier this year. The project, located on the beautiful Botswana University of Agriculture and Natural Resources (BUAN) campus, will provide clean solar power for teachers and students working to advance the sciences and local quality of life.

The circa 1 MW project has been developed by AAAS Energy in conjunction with BUAN, with the last mile development and EPC works being undertaken by Soventix, South Africa (Pty) Ltd.

The project will use FTC Solar’s Voyager+ tracker solution, according to the firm, offers all the advantages of FTC’s two-panel-in-portrait design, including industry-leading installation speeds, high slope tolerance, reduced part count and DC collections advantage, while being optimized for the industry’s new large format solar modules.

 Founded in 2017 by a group of renewable energy industry veterans, FTC Solar is headquartered in Austin, Texas, and maintains sales and support offices in the Middle East, Asia, Europe, Australia, India, and Africa.
