Solar FlexRack, a division of Northern States Metals and provider of photovoltaic mounting and solar tracker solutions, announced that its fixed-tilt solar racking system is being installed in a 105-MW solar power system in North Carolina.
Cypress Creek Renewables developed the project and is providing the engineering, procurement and construction services as well as the ongoing operations and maintenance services. The project is owned by Cubico Sustainable Investments, a global investor in renewable energy, backed by two of Canada’s largest pension funds.
The solar farm, located in Pender County, North Carolina, is one of Solar FlexRack’s largest projects to date. This array will be installed with more than 7,000 Solar FlexRack Series G3L-X racks, a field-assembled, ground-mount solution available for utility-scale and commercial solar projects. The solar modules being installed are First Solar’s Series 4 thin-film, recognized for their high energy yield and durability.
“Solar FlexRack has proven to be a valuable partner for the Pender County solar project,” said Kevin Donegan, senior VP of engineering, procurement and construction, Cypress Creek Renewables. “The company’s technical expertise in working with both crystalline and thin-film products is an important component of this project’s success.”
Covering 675 acres, the solar farm is projected to begin producing power by the end of the year.
“Cypress Creek is a reliable and experienced developer with an impressive track record of building quality solar power projects that help lower electricity costs, drive additional revenue streams for landowners and generate tax dollars that benefit the local communities,” said Steve Daniel, executive VP of Solar FlexRack. “We’re proud to be part of this valuable project.”
