A new solar tracking technology is increasing energy production by 30% per day, adding to the return on investment of rooftop solar arrays.
Edisun Microgrids, a solar technology company, and West Hills Construction, Inc. announced a partnership to develop up to 20 MW of commercial and industrial rooftop solar projects utilizing Edisun’s rooftop tracking technology. The first project developed under this partnership is a 1.0 MW solar array installed on 368,000 square feet of a 528,000-square-foot cold storage industrial building in Oxnard, Calif. The project utilizes more than 2,900 trackers, making it the world’s largest rooftop tracker installation. The solar power generated by the PV Booster installation will benefit HRI’s tenant Chiquita Brands International.
