|The QBotix Tracking System™ (QTS) is designed to provide benefits at every stage of a solar project’s life – from installation to long-term operation. That means that it creates value for each member of the industry ecosystem. As demonstrated below, these benefits are significant and hold true in a wide range of geographical locations.
Developers and IPPs
The QTS offers higher energy production with no increase in installed cost over single-axis systems, leading to the lowest LCOE in the industry. This allows Developers and IPP’s to enhance their competitiveness in the solar market by offering a differentiated product, while simultaneously increasing their profitability. Secondly, the QTS’s higher returns and installation flexibility expand the geographical areas where ground mounted PV projects are economically viable, opening new markets for Developers to explore.
Utilities and Ratepayers
The QTS achieves the lowest LCOE of any system type – a considerable advancement towards grid parity. This economic advantage allows utilities to increase the amount of solar power in their generation mix and fulfill renewables portfolio standard requirements at a lower cost. Ratepayers, in turn, will benefit from these cost savings.
EPCs and System Operators
The QTS enables faster installation times and lower costs, while also increasing reliability compared to traditional tracking systems. For EPCs and System Operators, this means using the QTS can increase their margins by reducing labor costs, both during construction and operation.
