RPCS has partnered with Energix for the installation of trackers at three of Energix’s solar projects, Hollyfield II (17 MW), Mt. Jackson (22 MW), Buckingham II (28 MW) and Leatherwood (25 MW), and intends to collaborate on two additional projects, totaling nearly 50 MW.

Based in Arlington, Virginia, Energix US, is an independent solar power producer that develops, constructs, owns and operates renewable energy projects. Energix is a unit of an Israeli publicly traded company Energix – Renewable Energies Ltd., an Israel based renewable energy company, with a portfolio of more than 3.4 GW, including more than 400 MW in commercial operation.

RPCS, a partner of solar tracker manufacturer Array Technologies, Inc., will install Array’s DuraTrack HZ v3 single-axis solar tracker for Energix’s three projects. Array trackers keep the solar photovoltaic modules following the sun on its course throughout the day, optimizing energy gains and ensuring up to a 20 to 25 percent increase in energy production over fixed-tilt systems.

“We are so thrilled to work with Energix on their Virginia portfolio and to support their growth in the U.S.,” says Alex Smith, Chief Sales Officer of RPCS. “Itamar and his team are exceptional partners and we share their focus on delivering the highest quality projects. We’re looking forward to Energix’s continued success and are honored to have the opportunity to be their partner.”

“We are proud to partner with RPCS in the goal of delivering more clean energy to the Commonwealth of Virginia and see this partnership as another milestone in our commitment to the US market,” says Itamar Sarussi, Senior Vice President of Business Development at Energix. “Energix procures the vast majority of our equipment and construction work here in the U.S., in keeping with our goal to create local jobs and benefits for the communities where we operate, and to fulfill our vision as a breakthrough global green utility, committed to our future on the planet.”
