“We are proud to have landed this unique project on the Navajo Nation. In addition to meeting cost effectiveness criteria, we were able to do so and also achieve low environmental impact and a very short timeline to supply and install” said Raúl Morales, the CEO of Soltec.
“For the Kayenta project we will supply our cable management solution that runs PV array cabling within the tracker torque tube and results in savings on trays, trenching and installation labor. Our Wireless Mesh communication network provides real time data between each tracker and central control with less material cost and installation labor,” said José Alfonso Teruel, R&D Manager at Soltec.
The SF Utility Self-Powered solution imposes zero impact on available array active-area, and it minimizes operational power expenses over the life of the power plant.
