Tracking systems

  • To improve energy output, developers and installers turn to tracking systems. These motorized ground-mounts track the sun throughout the day, ensuring the panels are facing the sun at all times. Panels are attached to similar racking tables as traditional ground-mounts, usually bolted or clamped into place, but there are different types of tracking systems.

  • The two main classifications of tracking systems are single-axis and dual-axis. Single-axis tracking systems span panels on long rows, following the sun from east to west. Dual-axis tracking systems separate out tables of panels and follow the sun on a more circular path for the best energy output.
