FOLLOW THE SUN: A Look at the Benefits of Solar Tracking Technology

Follow the Sun

To track or not to track? There’s no denying that this has been a decades-old question in the ground mount solar industry. While choosing between fixed-tilt and tracker systems is just one of the many important factors to consider when in the initial planning phase of a ground mount solar PV array, industry trends reflect the economic advantages that make trackers the go-to technology.

Solar trackers are undoubtedly dominating the market, with the lion’s share of ground mount sites comprised of trackers—a trend that is expected to continue well into the next decade. An estimated one-third of all ground mount solar PV deployed in the next five years will utilize solar tracker systems, with the U.S. leading the market. So, aside from the obvious, often-touted energy gains, why track the sun?

RP Construction Services, Inc. (RPCS), trusted partner of single-axis solar tracker pioneer and leading manufacturer Array Technologies, Inc., experiences firsthand the clear advantages of installing solar trackers— particularly Array’s DuraTrack® HZ V3 single-axis tracker—on a ground mount project.

If you’re not already tracking, here’s why you should.
