Solar FlexRack supplies trackers for 8 MW of Illinois solar projects

Photovoltaic mounting and solar tracking solutions provider Solar FlexRack has supplied Primergy Solar with its TDP and TDP 2.0 Solar Trackers for 14 projects, all of which will supply energy to schools in Illinois. Located in the North and Central Illinois, the projects together total over 8 MW.
“Primergy Solar has a solid team of experienced solar industry veterans and is building high-performance solar projects that will deliver lower-cost clean energy reliably to these schools for decades. School solar programs are a win-win for the schools and their communities,” said Steve Daniel, executive VP of Solar FlexRack.
The ground-mount solar systems range from 118 kW to 2 MW and are installed with native prairie grasses and pollinator gardens, which are important assets for both supporting a healthy ecosystem and benefitting local agriculture.
Primergy Solar is working with the Illinois schools powered by these projects to develop a curriculum that helps students learn more about renewable power generation and sustainability and integrates monitoring of the pollinator gardens and solar systems, as well as information about how solar generation works.
“Primergy Solar is pleased to near completion on this exciting phase of our Illinois portfolio,” said Adam Larner, chief operating officer of Primergy Solar. “It’s important to have suppliers who deliver not only reliable technology but responsive, results-oriented customer service, and we’ve gotten both from Solar FlexRack.”
Primergy Solar has prior experience with schools and is poised to expand its portfolio to support midwestern educational facilities through their local partner — engineering, procurement and construction company Clean Energy Design Group (CEDG). Based in Springfield, Illinois, CEDG partnered with Primergy Solar on the construction of these 14 projects and also manages their operations and maintenance. CEDG additionally worked closely with Primergy Solar in the selection of tracker technology for the projects, to ensure the optimal delivery of energy yield.
