Jason Whitaker

Shoals Technologies Group Inc., a supplier {of electrical} steadiness of techniques (EBOS) options for solar, storage and electrical car (EV) charging infrastructure, and utility-scale solar tracker firm Nextracker LLC have unveiled a brand new North-South Big Lead Assembly (BLA) trunk bus product.

Optimized for NX Horizon tracker rows, the trunk bus runs parallel – reasonably than perpendicular – to the torque tube and transition containers alongside the north-south row and steps down the scale of the trunk bus alongside the tracker rows. Without any buildings to impede website entry, ongoing power plant O&M is less complicated and quicker.

Compared to traditional in-field north-south wiring strategies, Shoals North-South BLA delivers a 43% financial savings in PV wiring set up labor, a 60% financial savings in DC wiring O&M, and a 0.25% enhance in energy yield attributable to much less DC wiring voltage drop, the businesses say.

“We are proud to partner with Nextracker to make our leading solar ecosystems work optimally together, resulting in utility-scale solar that is more cost effective for our customers,” says Jason Whitaker, CEO of Shoals. “We will continue to innovate collaboratively with Nextracker to enhance our North-South BLA product to further optimize its architecture and installation methodologies, enabling even more cost savings.”

“This collaboration with Shoals provides a critical solution to an industry-wide challenge,” states Dan Shugar, founder and CEO of Nextracker. “We are excited this North-South BLA product is now available, helping more projects realize the long-term benefit of our independent row trackers.”
