High Efficiency Dual Axis Solar Tracking System
The sTracker is a high efficiency ground mount dual axis solar tracking system. It aims solar panels at the sun all day long for maximum power. Solar energy production from tracking can produce almost twice the output over stationary solar panel installations.
The sTracker is a tilt type tracker. This type of tracking can tilt the panels at very steep angles to absorb maximum solar energy all day long.

The sTracker is designed for reliability with little to no maintenance requirements. Using redundancy in a small scale is superior to large scale solar tracking systems. Multiple sTrackers can be chained together like an army. If for some reason one stops, it does not bring the whole system down. Unlike huge 40 panel solar tracking systems, if one fails, you may need to dismantle the whole thing to replace the main drive and other mechanisms. The key is to "tilt tip" the tracker using small, low cost, linear actuators combined with a small solar assisted battery. Replacement parts are as easy to replace as a light bulb. The sTracker will provide many years of service guaranteed with warranty.
Applications and Uses
For property owners with land space, farmers that need relief power for irrigation pumps, high consumption grow lighting, air conditioning, off grid battery charging, electric cars. The list goes on.
Compatible with off-grid, and grid tie assist battery systems. Our solar tracking panels can charge batteries all day long.
The sTracker is a ground mount solar system. And produces more power per square foot vs stationary type solar installations.
Commercial Applications, Contractors and Distributors

Return on Investment
One tracking system can produce over 12 kWatt/hours a day in mid to southern latitudes spring to fall. Depending on your situation, payoff times can be as low as 3 years. The sTracker can mount up to 1.6 Kwatts of solar panels using the current panel output technology. This equates to 2.2 kWatts because it is tracking and produding 40% more solar power. Add more trackers for even more power.
We have crunched some of the numbers and came up with some ruff "Return on Investment" estimates for normal climates along the mid longitude areas such as San Francisco,CA and other outlying cities and suburban areas.
Here are the the results:
A Fixed/Roof system: 5-9 years ROI.
A Suntactics solar tracker: 3-5 ROI.
Build a Solar Farm!
We can install a complete solar tracking field for you. This includes solar tracking analysis, surveys, acquiring permits, plans, placement, and everything else needed to get you up and running using high efficiency solar tracking.
We also offer a complete storage battery system for Fire victim residents in California. Using solar tracking, wind, backup generators, and batteries. This gets very close to off-grid and power independence. Call us for more details.
