Suntura Solar Tracker: Dual Axis Solar Sun Tracking Unit




What do you think about this video?

Prancinglion1: It looks great, but it also seems a little flimsy. How does it hold up to sudden wind gusts...? Also, what is it's weight capacity? I plan to build 8 solar panels that are quite large. Could this system handle larger panels (12' X 12') ...?

urgentcareguy3: It is very nice, but I live in Tornado alley, so I have a special need : ) There is a commercial one from Spain puts the panels in a horizontal position.

urgentcareguy3: Does it shift positions in high wind conditions?

WindyNation: @urgentcareguy3 Well, if it is a tornado, then it does not matter. Everything is going to be destroyed.

WindyNation: @urgentcareguy3 No, but there are manual controllers that will allow you to do this. It is designed to handle ~65 mph gusts which is a lot of wind for a structure to receive that is only ~8 ft off the ground.

WindyNation: @Prancinglion1 It is not flimsy. It can take 65 mph wind gusts according to our real world tests and engineering calculations. This tracker can only handle 400 Watts of solar. We will have a new tracker in the late Spring of 2012 that can handle at least 1000 Watts of solar .... possibly 1400 Watts.

WindyNation: Yes, on our website. We are currently redesigning our trackers. We will have larger tracker, which will be able to hold at least 1000 Watts of solar panels, available in the late Spring of 2012.
