Ojjo announced it has expanded the compatibility of its patented Earth Truss System across top-tier tracker manufacturers: Array Technologies, Nextracker and now including GameChange Solar.
Ojjo’s novel design typically requires significantly less steel volume and labor as compared to conventional piles — delivering high value to utility-scale projects that contain subsurface risk, predrill requirements or significant grading. Explicitly engineered with mating hardware designed for each tracker manufacturer’s bearing componentry, Ojjo foundations seamlessly integrate for a supplier-agnostic approach with no modifications to any tracker systems required.
Ojjo foundations have been successfully deployed on nearly 2 GW of large-scale projects utilizing both Nextracker and Array Technologies systems. Nextracker took early adopter advantage and was first-to-market with an Ojjo UL 2703 listed solution, selected for initial projects including 105 MW of the Titan and Aragorn Solar Projects in Texas, as well as the 175-MW Yellow Pine 1 solar project in Nevada. Following the release of Ojjo’s compatible solution with Array Technologies, both companies were chosen for the 967-MW Gemini Solar Project, the nation’s largest standalone solar and storage project. Ojjo has several additional projects underway with both Array Technologies and Nextracker and is seeing strong demand for GameChange Solar trackers across anticipated projects.
“We firmly believe that purpose-built solar foundations are a crucial step forward for the solar industry, enabling more efficient and cost-effective installations. The Earth Truss System harnesses advanced automation for precise truss placement and torque-tube-ready alignment to simplify tracker installation,” said Helena Kimball, president of Ojjo. “In expanding our tracker compatibility today, we are pleased to offer customers even greater flexibility of choice to leverage value-engineering benefits.”
