Solar Tracking Trio

What about those solar things that follow the sun.......................? I get asked about tracking systems from time to time. Above is a fantastic time-lapse video of a solar PV system that relies on three dual-axis Wattsun trackers. PIMBY Energy installed this system for Richard and Susan back in the fall of 2009. Their property has great solar exposure which the tracking motors help to improve by moving the PV panels so that they are directly facing the sun. The upshot is that the panels are able to produce 22% more power than they would without tracking.

Below are a few additional photos of the installation. All the different personalities and talents that helped out on the project kept the mood light and made for a great experience.
