Our big tracker is in the news!

An article in InfoNews-Kamloops today profiles the tracker owned by our clients Penny and Charles.

Even with the incredible amount of smoke in the area for more than a month, this tracker is making enough power daily to power 2-3 average homes.





The article states:
After installing the largest sun tracking solar panel in B.C. on their farm in Black Pines just north of Kamloops, Charles Hays and Penny Powers expect to never pay for power again.
If all goes according to plan, the power company will pay them.
Charles Hays and Penny Powers hope their story will inspire others.

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.



To see how this came together, check out our featured post here.

Even on extremely smoky days our solar arrays make power

Even with several very smoky days in the interior of BC from forest fires, our new tracker on the outskirts of Kamloops managed to make a whopping 1000 kWhs or (1MWh) in just 13 days! It's best day resulted in 90.9 kWh - enough to power three average houses.
