Manufacturers are constantly making incremental improvements to their solar panels to create a higher energy yield per unit than previous and competing models. Another proven way to increase system output is by using trackers, which, unlike fixed-tilt ground-mount systems, make solar panels follow the sun’s path throughout the day.
There are two main types of solar trackers available on the market: single- and dual-axis.
Single-axis solar trackers track the sun east to west, rotating on a single point, moving either in unison, by panel row or by section. Dual-axis trackers rotate on both the X and Y axes, making panels track the sun directly.
