New Solar Tracker from SunPower

At the Intersolar 2007 conference last week, SunPower Corporation launched the next generation of its SunPower(R) Tracker, a solar power system that delivers up to 30 percent more energy than fixed-tilt systems while reducing required land area and installation cost. The Tracker uses high-efficiency SunPower solar panels tilted at up to 25-degrees to track the sun throughout the day. Each Tracker module generates up to 2.5 kilowatts of power and comes with a 25-year warranty. Benefits of the new system include: Higher energy delivery per land area than conventional trackers; Pre-assembled systems for fast, simple installation; Patented single-axis technology utilizes fewer moving parts than conventional dual-axis tracking systems, providing more reliability and requiring less maintenance; Backtracking technology, which allows the panels to change direction as necessary, avoids shading and prevents panel sun spots; Scales easily from 50-kilowatt installations to large, multi-megawatt solar power plants.
