Nevados is a pioneer in the solar energy field

We set out to make solar a cost-competitive source of clean energy in every way possible. With our proprietary product, the Nevados All-Terrain Tracker System, we help solar developers increase location site options, eliminate major costs of construction, and maximize power generation.

 

What we do

 

Increase site options, More solar in more places

The Nevados All-Terrain Tracker system can be easily install on flat, sloped or rolling terrain using standard equipment.

Follow the natural contours of the Land

Developers no longer need to grade the site in order to use trackers, and minimizes environmental damage. In addition, when installed on slopes, the project can benefit from increased energy generation.

Reduce construction time

By using smart design techniques to standardize installation, projects can avoid common delays due to grading, construction, and environmental issues.

Improve project economics

We help developers lower project system costs and increase energy generation, leading to an improved LCOE and ROI.

Product


The Nevados All-Terrain Tracker is the first of its kind. By bringing the benefits of tracking to the entire solar energy industry, our system brings two major innovations.

Product


The Nevados All-Terrain Tracker is the first of its kind. By bringing the benefits of tracking to the entire solar energy industry, our system brings two major innovations.

Robust Mechanical Design

The first innovation is a low-cost tracker designed for flat terrain that can also be installed on sloped and rolling terrain by substituting in different bearing designs. This eliminates the need for heavy site grading and can also increase generation beyond a typical single axis tracker if installed on south-facing slopes (in the northern hemisphere).


Intelligent Control System

The second innovation is a control system that automatically adjusts each tracker row individually to maximize sunlight capture while also monitoring and adjusting for inter-row shading. This sets the stage for maximizing sunlight exposure and generating energy on any level of land.
