Installation of the Savanna™ dual-axis PV tracker is extremely fast, efficient and inexpensive. With only hand tools, four workers can install a Savanna™ tracker in less than 10-15 minutes. Our tracker requires no foundations, and cables are attached to the frame via cable trays, so site trenching is reduced significantly. By reducing the civil construction costs from solar, we reduce installation costs while boosting performance, all in a low-cost system.
Savanna™ Trackers Time-lapse - The Savanna™ dual-axis PV Tracker is a low cost solar PV tracker, with very low costs to install and operate. In this video, trackers are seen tracking the sun throughout the day, which increases performance by 25-40%, when compared with fixed panels. The Savanna™ employs a unique, proprietary back-tracking algorithm to minimize shading when tracking. The back-tracking algorithm changes the panels' elevation angle according to the sun's position to avoid shading the panels behind it. Although the algorithm will move the panel away from the being perpendicular to the sun, the total power production is greater than when there are partially shaded panels.
