Pursuit Solar Named Among the Most Intriguing Innovations at SPI 2019
Updated: Apr 3, 2020
Out of more than 700 exhibitors lining the massive show floor at Solar Power International in Salt Lake City, Pursuit Solar was selected by Solar Builder magazine as one of the 12 Most Intriguing Innovations.
The magazine described “a virtual Utah beehive of new ideas, old ideas that have been nicely tweaked and some ideas that have been turned on their heads.”
“This fresh startup has developed a hybrid parabolic/PV single-axis tracker, sporting HelioDrive technology, that uses thermal energy to actuate the tracker array. Unlike other single-axis tracker offerings that sport mini-solar panels + battery storage to turn the torque tube, Pursuit heats up a wax-filled piston to rotate the table, so no captive energy is required.”

Pursuit Solar founder Eddie Bugg manned the floor, demonstrating the power and potential of top-of-pole racking featuring HelioDrive™ technology, which delivers the capability of generating and storing up to 25% more energy without the hassle and ongoing maintenance of traditional solar trackers.
“SPI was an amazing experience,” Bugg said. “It was exciting to be surrounded by so many leaders in the industry and so many game-changing ideas. We’re honored that Solar Builder magazine — out of hundreds of exhibitors — selected Pursuit Solar as one of the most intriguing innovations at this massive event.”
