ALBUQUERQUE, NM – Array Technologies, a global leader in utility-scale solar tracking solutions, announced plans for a US$50 million expansion at its Albuquerque, New Mexico headquarters. The expansion will create nearly 100 new jobs and help retain hundreds of existing jobs.
The expansion will include a new 216,000-square-foot campus on Albuquerque’s west side. Construction is scheduled to begin in early 2024.
