New Solar tracking system

Herunterladen, um offline zu lesen

Because of the low solar PV panel prices traditional solar trackers became too expensive relative to the installed cost. The "solution" was to stop using solar trackers in most cases. We believe the solution is to redesign solar trackers to make them economic in today's market. And that's what we did!

New Solar tracking system

  1. 1. SmartSolar Tracking System
  2. 2. SmartSolarEnergyTechnology Overview • The SmartSolar tracking system was designed with the objective to cost no more than 15% of a fixed solar PV installation. This functional design will cost less than 150-200 US$/kWp • The design uses slewing drives, the most reliable, proven technology available, used in both solar trackers and many other demanding applications. • The purpose of this presentation is to let you know that solar tracking can & will come back! May 2016
