Prosolmed - Getting The Most Out Of The Sun

prosolmed-solar-spain-01.jpgThe Spanish company Prosolmed is currently testing a solar-power generation plant that tracks the sun throughout the day to always keep the panels at a right angle in relation with the light rays. We've seen this before, but only with much smaller panels. Maybe what Prosolmed is doing is not a first, but it is certainly not common yet. We suspect that the very large-scale solar plants of the future will look like Australia's solar tower, but the medium-sized installations could certainly use this technology. The tracking system helps improve energy production by up to 40% (!) compared to an installation of the same size that doesn't move. ::Prosolmed, via ::Le Blog √Čnergie (french)
