A dual axis tracker in action
By 9:45AM today our big tracker (45 modules) made more than enough energy to supply the daily needs of the owner’s house. It will likely make over 100 kWh today. The excess will be banked as a credit for future use but the actual energy is going into the grid and being used by immediate neighbours. In this case, enough for 4-5 houses today. This is the power of solar. Since BC generates more than 90% of our electricity from hydro, this means that reservoirs can be drawn down at a slower rate, and ultimately less hydro is required.
