Solar Photovoltaic Tracking System

Large solar panel installation is becoming more economical as a viable alternative to coal, oil or gas-fired power plants. To make the most of the panels, it is cost effective to install them on a structure that can follow the sun from east to west (azimuth) and from north to south (elevation) as the sun moves across the sky.
