There are more than 40,000 PST-2AL units in use to date, primarily in the Alamo Solar Projects in Texas. With the smaller design, Sun Action enters the growing residential space “utilizing its existing manufacturing capabilities and partnerships,” the company says.
The residential and commercial markets for trackers have begun to open over the past few years, with dual axis solutions leading the way given the higher energy yield than single axis. Apart from the vast residential demand for PV, commercial demand is expected to increase soon as new technology like that from Edisun Microgrid, designed for flat roofs, is adopted.
Dual-axis trackers also have proven to be more suitable for specialty markets like brown fields, municipal disposal sites, and other site-challenged locations. Microgrids, high security sites — like law enforcement, fire departments and hospitals — and other academic, commercial or corporate campuses are turning to dual axis trackers for maximum yield design.
“We are incredibly excited to enter a new space with our revolutionary product line that has time and time again proven its worth in the solar tracking industry. Our Dual Axis Trackers offer up to 45 percent greater production from traditionally used methods in residential solar, and our dealers are sharing our enthusiasm for the potential of our product in their market,” says Ron Hardin, the company director of dealer support.
Sun Action Trackers is a full line manufacturer of single and dual axis solar tracking and racking systems. With headquarters in San Antonio, the company’s tracker solution has more deployments than any model in North America at over 40,000, the company claims.
