Accurate Utility-scale Tracker for Increased Effeciency
Building on our extensive experience with high accuracy solar thermal trackers, the Radiance™ solar tracking system is now available as single axis photovoltaic (PV) tracking solution.
Tracking PV is an obvious way to increase plant efficiency while lowering balance of systems costs: less inverters, cabling, installation and cleaning.
By tracking the sun, plant yields can be increased by up to 25% with an improved delivery profile allowing operators to capture more of the peak electricty price and delivery better ROI.
Backtracking is a feature which elimiates self shading and allows the maximum possible energy to be captured during daily operation. Backtracking is available as standard on all Radiance PV Trackers.
The Radiance Master Controller is designed to integrate seamlessly into the plant control SCADA and reporting workflows.
