Robinson Elementary School, the town of Starksboro, Vt., and AllEarth Renewables Inc., based in Williston, Vt., have partnered to install 25 AllSun Trackers on a field adjacent to the school.
Over the course of a year, the 100 kW photovoltaic array is expected to produce enough electricity to meet 100% of the needs of both the school and the town offices, according to AllEarth Renewables.
The AllSun Tracker is a complete grid-connected solar electric system that consists of photovoltaic panels mounted on poles installed in the ground. The system uses a global positioning system and a dual-axis rotation to keep the solar panels at a perpendicular angle to the sun's rays throughout the day, the company explains.
