Solar Installation Series Webinar

Tracking Technology – 1P vs. 2P

Thursday, October 21, 2:00-3:00 p.m. EDT

Solar Industry and Soltec are presenting this special webinar for developers, installers and integrators
who are looking to sharpen their understanding of solar tracker technologies, with an eye toward
choosing the right tracker for each project’s unique characteristics.

We will cover:

  • The key differences between 1P and 2P tracker technologies
  • How the orography of a site influences project layout and determines whether 1P or 2P trackers
    are more beneficial
  • The types of layouts where the use of 1P or 2P tracking is more profitable
  • How project design, wind conditions, terrain, soil type, latitude and other factors affect LCOE
