Dual axis tracker in Black Pines BC

A big thank you to electrician Amie Schellenberg from Lodgepole Electrical and general contractor Jono Beech for getting this big and bold tracker installed and running.

This 45 module tracker follows the Sun like a sunflower and it will produce more than 25,000 kWh/year.


By 11:15AM today it had already made more than 30 kWh of electricity - enough to power the average home in BC for a day.



It is located on the outskirts of Kamloops in Black Pines and you can see how beautfully it fits into the local environment.
