Solar panel tracking solutions improve energy efficiency of solar

‘Solar trackers’ is a term that has been used by many, but quite a lot of people do not really understand its purpose and importance. Solar trackers ensure panels are directed toward the sun in order to maximise the energy captured. Solar panel tracking solutions are constantly in motion so as to effectively direct the panels.

Solar panel tracking solutions are durable devices that host the mounted PV panels. When compared to stationary PV panels, solar systems with trackers installed are significantly more effective. This is due to stationary panels only having optimum exposure for a limited part of the day. With solar panel tracking solutions, the mount automatically moves the panels to track the sun, so the output is extended, and you get the most out of the sun’s rays.

Solar panel tracking solutions advantages

  1. Because you have a mount that is able to move around, you get more electricity, and you increase energy efficiency compared to their stationary counterpart because there is increased direct exposure to the sun.
  2. There is optimal land usage which means that because it would need a bigger space upon installation, the amount that you would be earning from solar energy system would be roughly the same amount that you invest in it.

Disadvantages are also present, as always, and here are they:

  1. Primarily it would be the price simply because the solar panel tracker is more expensive.
  2. There would be ongoing maintenance that would be necessary. Then again, as always it is best to choose quality solar tracker because this would also play a part in the long run as you invest money in purchasing one.

The Solar FlexRack series is a leader in the solar panel tracking solutions that you might want to consider. With the different advantages and disadvantages noted above, it would definitely be important that you do a little research and comparison among the current market for the solar trackers. While fairly new because of the continuous forward movement of solar panels, there is a definite plus in knowing that improvement is incessant.
