Suntactics sTracker Dual Axis Solar Tracking System
The sTracker is a high efficiency dual axis sun 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. System does not include solar panels.

The sTracker design is based on large commercial use solar trackers, but made to reap the same rewards in solar tracking power on a smaller scale. Multiple trackers can be chained together for more solar power as needed. Simple, low power, actuators are powered from solar to move the structure. This means low maintenance requirements.
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
The Suntactics solar tracking system is the perfect alternative product offering for your clients. The sTracker is very structurally sound,robust and designed well for small to medium commercial use. We have a full production facility and can supply in volume. If you are unsure, we can assist you with your initial installations. A matter of fact, we can install the system for you which includes the full permitting and planning process.

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.
