100-MW New York solar portfolio will use Ideematec trackers
“By partnering with the Ideamatec team of experts, we can provide maximum total portfolio value and support reliable, clean energy for New Yorkers,” said Osea Nelson, partner at LightEdison. “We are drawn to Horizon L:TEC’s ability to withstand the extreme weather conditions of New York State, its streamlined installation process and its affordability. We also have confidence in the Ideamatec team, who recognize the value of transparency and ongoing communication for a multi-location portfolio of this size.”
The companies will first deploy a 25 MW portfolio of community solar projects in the National Grid service area registered under New York’s NY-Sun program. The program allows local businesses, homeowners and communities to choose clean energy sources.
“We are excited to partner with this expert development and design team to advance clean energy adoption in New York. The flexible configuration and locking technology of our two-in-portrait tracker is an ideal combination for the harsh environments and challenging terrains of the Northeast,” said Philipp Klemm, CEO of Ideematec.
Eco Engineering/LightEdison will lead the portfolio’s procurement efforts as a joint venture in partnership with Source Renewables, a clean energy development company.
