Solar tracking provider FTC Solar has partnered with solar contracting company AUI Partners for offering solar tracking services for the distributed generation (DG) market.
FTC Solar’s DG Solutions Business Unit with AUI Partners will provide solar tracking services for sites under 20MWs.
This new collaboration will help FTC Solar’s customers achieve maximum energy optimization by utilizing FTC Solar’s Voyager+ 2P solar tracker and AUI’s extensive experience in site design and construction. The partnership will leverage an innovative sourcing strategy and inventory capabilities with the goal of providing delivery lead times of as short as 8 weeks – based on project specifications.
FTC Solar and AUI Partners are targeting multiple segments for this offering, including commercial and industrial (C&I), community solar programs, projects for independent power producers (IPP), and smaller one-off projects for sectors such as agriculture.
FTC Solar unveiled its Voyager+ product in September of 2021 to optimize for large format modules, withstand wind speeds up to 120mph, and provide tracking solutions for complex sites. To optimize the Voyager+ tracker, FTC offers a variety of software solutions, including its SunPath platform, which will also be available for Distributed Generation projects.
