Is solar tracking worth it?
A cost analysis of each installation is needed to determine payback period, but solar tracking is not considered worth it for installations under 6kW.
Why is the sun tracked for solar?
The angle of incidence determines the efficiency and a solar panel's maximum output happens when its surface is at 90 degrees to the sun.
When do solar panels work best?
Panel efficiency is affected by irradiance, shading, temperature, maintenance, title angle and orientation
How to find out if solar tracking is worth it
Each installation needs a cost-analysis calculation to compare payback periods with and without tracking
Is it best to auto-track or add more solar panels?
For many, it isn't worth the hassle of installing a complex piece of equipment like a sun-tracker when they could simple add a few solar panels
How can I increase my solar panel output?
Regular maintenance and cleaning helps maintain solar panel output. Ensure the solar panel array is in direct sunlight with no shading.
