When you think of “maximizing sun exposure,” you may think of a sunbather turning to get an even tan. You may also think of plants such as the sunflower, which turn from east to west daily, following the sun. Indeed, those are both excellent examples, but did you know that your solar panels can also be set up to follow the sun and thereby maximize their production potential?
What is a Solar Tracker
A solar tracker is a durable hydraulic unit that pivots on two axis, and with the use of smart technology and GPS, turns the panels so that they are consistently facing the sun. This allows your system to generate up to 45% more energy than a fixed system would.
Smart Technology at Work
The sun, and indeed, the rotation of the earth, follows seasons and cycles. The timing of sunrise and sunset varies daily, based on the position of the earth and its location along its orbit around the sun. Smart technology allows the solar tracker to effortlessly follow the sun no matter what season or time of day it is. This allows your unit to be positioned for maximum energy production every single daylight hour of the year.
