Solar tracking company Array Technologies announced this week that it has commissioned the 102MW(AC) Lamesa Solar Facility in Lamesa, Texas.

Developed by engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) firm Renewable Energy Systems (RES), the installation utilises Array’s solar trackers to maximise the project’s energy output and meet the electricity needs of approximately 15,000 homes in Texas.

Built over 359 hectares of land in Dawson County, Texas, the installation features Array’s DuraTrack HZ v3 product to ensure optimal output from the facility’s 410,000 PV panels.

Despite certain challenges due to the weather in the South Plains region of Texas, the project was completed on time due to Array’s installation-efficient solar trackers. The installation went online in May 2017.

Array Technologies founder and CEO Ron Corio said: “When considering the size and scope of a PV plant like the Lamesa Facility, reliable product selection is crucial to project schedules and operational uptime. The Array team has poured almost 30 years into our tried-and-true solar tracking technologies to offer installers and asset owners an unbeatable combination of performance and reliability. We are excited to see this project come to life with a globally respected player like RES and look forward to partnering with them again to meet the demands of both today’s and tomorrow’s solar market.”
