Solar tracking company Nevados Engineering Inc. is partnering with independent power producer Energix Renewables to provide an all-terrain technology platform as part of a long-term solar tracking supply agreement and strategic collaboration.
Energix uses American Nevados solar trackers to minimize grading on domestic projects with severe topographical challenges. Energix Renewables currently has more than 6 GW of solar projects in the US. The Nevados partnership allows Energix to develop solar projects in areas with challenging slopes without extensive grading.
The new partnership with Nevados means Energix can deploy best-in-class solar power plants with minimal topographic impact.
“Our goal is to build efficient solar projects that respect the natural landscape and benefit local communities,” says Itamar Sarussi, Country Director of Energix US. “The new partnership with Nevados means Energix can deploy best-in-class solar with minimal consumption. topographic impact and help ensure our projects on topographically diverse sites are successful.”
Energix and Nevados begin their partnership with three solar farms in rural Virginia, two of which are located in the highly regulated Chesapeake Bay watershed with rolling topography: Apple Grove Solar is a 20 MW solar project in Louisa County and plans to partner with local beekeepers. implement a fully functional pollinator garden on site. The 37 MW Endless Caverns and 25 MW River Trail solar projects are the first large solar projects located in Rockingham County and Carroll County.
