Solar FlexRack Offers Trackers for 42 MW Group Solar Portfolio


One of fourteen neighborhood solar initiatives in Illinois that leverages Solar FlexRack’s FlexTrack Solar Trackers.

Solar FlexRack has equipped its FlexTrack Solar Trackers for a 42 MW portfolio of neighborhood solar initiatives in Illinois to Summit Ridge Energy, an owner-operator of neighborhood solar property. All 14 initiatives are a part of Illinois Shines, a state-administered program that creates incentives for the event of latest solar photovoltaic initiatives.

“We’re pleased to work with Solar FlexRack on these projects given their engineering expertise and reliable partnership,” says Raj Soi, govt vice chairman of operations at Summit Ridge Energy. “With over 250 MW of clean energy assets online or in development in Illinois, we’re proud of our leadership in the state and we look forward to continuing to deliver more affordable and reliable clean energy to local communities.”

These initiatives have been established by way of the Illinois Climate and Equitable Jobs Act (CEJA), which was signed into legislation in September 2021, re-establishing the Illinois Shines ABP, which authorizes the acquisition of Renewable Energy Certificates (RECs) from solar panel system homeowners. At least 250 MW of latest neighborhood solar initiatives have already been permitted by way of this program and when accomplished, these initiatives will permit an estimated 35,000 households to decrease their electrical payments with out putting in solar panels.

“Summit Ridge Energy is a leader in renewable energy in Illinois and we are excited to have the opportunity to work with their team to cost effectively deploy a large volume of high quality community solar projects in the state,” feedback Greg Lewis, director of gross sales for Eastern U.S. at Solar FlexRack. “Having completed hundreds of cold weather challenged projects in Canada and the Northeastern U.S. over the past decade, we look forward to further utilizing our expertise and tracker technology in these impactful projects.”
