Home Units (Dual Panel Tracker)

You are here: Home / Home Units (Dual Panel Tracker)

With Solar World solar panels, we now produce more wattage and use larger EnPhase inverters. The 520 watt Dual Panel Tracker (DPT) is a 2 panel tracking mount designed for simple installation on a pole or simple wooden post.

Two 260 watt panels are installed on a rotating pivot tube oriented with the earth’s polar axis. An automotive actuator and microprocessor rotate the panel to track the sun and produce up to 30% more power per day.

The DPT ground mount unit is a convenient option for home use. The 6″x6″ wood post is installed like a fence post and multiple units can be installed to meet nearly any power requirement. A local licensed electrician can easily install the wiring to produce a grid-tied home power system or a stand-alone independent power system.

The DPT system provides an easy way for homeowners to install a high performance home power system that is ground level with no roof mounting structures required.
