Intersect Power taps Signal Energy, Nextracker for new 728-MW solar portfolio
Intersect Power has selected Signal Energy as the EPC company for its new portfolio of solar projects in Texas and California. The developer has also selected Nexttracker’s NX Horizon smart solar trackers and TrueCapture yield optimization software for the two large-scale solar projects totaling 728 MW.DC.
The 415 MWDC Radian Project in Texas and the 313-MWDC The Athos III project in California is expected to begin construction later this year and be operational in 2022. Series 6 PV solar modules will be provided for both projects by First Solar, Inc.
These projects include the second batch of utility-scale solar projects that Nexttracker and Intersect Power have worked on together in the two states. With a combined installed capacity of more than 1.7 GWDC, the previous portfolio of five projects in California and Texas is under construction and will soon power the cumulative equivalent of 357,000 homes. Signal Energy was the EPC firm in three out of five in the previous portfolio.
“Our Pre-Construction team worked with Intersect Power early in the process to develop the lowest energy cost solution to complete the development of Radian and Athos III,” said Ryan Johnson, president of Signal Energy. “We have also partnered with Nextracker to overcome global logistics challenges to maintain overall project schedules and look forward to working with them on these two outstanding projects.”
Both projects will deploy Nexttracker’s TrueCapture advanced tracker optimization and control software to capture additional energy gains during diffuse lighting conditions.
