PROJECT BRIEF
ONE TRACKING SYSTEM FOR CHALLENGING TERRAIN
Clark County, Georgia

HIGHLIGHTS

An Atlanta, Georgia-based EPC firm deployed the Sunfolding T29 tracker system at a wastewater treatment facility on a terraced property with five separate soil grades, some with a slope of up to 25°. The challenge was to leave much of the property undisturbed. Soil grading would have been time-consuming and expensive.

Designing the project with Sunfolding’s short tracker tables that scale down to a single string length, the EPC was able to subdivide the site into five distinct arrays without driving up project costs. The Sunfolding T29’s low post embedment also minimized soil disturbance and reduced material cost.

ADVANTAGES

  • Profitable project deployment on undulating terrain

  • Minimize costly, time-consuming civil work

PROJECT BRIEF
OPTIMIZING UTILIZATION AT AN IMPERFECT PROJECT SITE
Boulder County, Colorado

HIGHLIGHTS

A solar project provider installed the Sunfolding T29 onto compact spaces between three twisting water drainage features that imposed design challenges at a 10MW site in Colorado. Site constraints make it difficult for traditional trackers to maximize site utilization and produce an efficient electrical design.

The Sunfolding T29’s flexible array layouts maximized the tracker footprint, matching the tracker table to the 1-string electrical design to fill tight spaces. Slim tracker-to-tracker spacing enabled the system supplier to save on wire runs and reduce voltage drop.

ADVANTAGES

  • Flexible site layouts for optimal land use

  • Save money and energy with an efficient electrical design
