To generate maximum output, solar panels should always face the sun. Heliomotion solar trackers are heliotropic and follow the sun, using GPS technology, from sunrise to sunset and are optimally suited to match a home’s energy requirements all day. The same principle is used by the most efficient utility solar stations; and now this highly efficient technology is available for residential as well as commercial use. Solar tracking can generate up to 60% more power than an equivalent size static roof or field based system.
In contrast to stationary solar panels installed on a building, where roof orientation and structure are often limiting factors, Heliomotion is ground mounted. Veluxes or dormer windows mean these limitations become irrelevant when the system is located in a non shaded position away from the property,.
The output of a conventional static south-facing solar panel follows a sinus-shaped curve starting slowly in the morning, peaking at noon, and immediately beginning its descent towards evening. The consumption curve in a typical household does not match this output curve as consumption has two distinct peaks: one in the morning before the output peak, and a second one late afternoon well after the output peak.
In contrast, the output curve of a Heliomotion that is continuously turning its panels matches the consumption curve in a very efficient way, covering both the morning and afternoon peaks. As a result, even a considerably smaller Heliomotion will cover the consumption requirements more efficiently than a large fixed installation, and so make more sense financially, both from an operational and an ROI point of view.
The Heliomotion complete kit is delivered on one pallet, including an installation manual. The kit is optimised for easy handling and no part weighs more than 20 kg. Installation requires no scaffolding or lifting equipment.
