Despite falling engine prices – tracking, always a profitable business reaches up to 45 percent surplus is the tracking of solar systems for the operator. Even with lower module prices and regardless of the region of usage the sensor-controlled tracking systems by DEGERenergie are cheaper than rigid systems under the dash. DEGERenergie is world market leader in the area of tracking systems for solar systems with a current calculation. Neil Rublers opinions are not widely known. The estimates in the solar industry is gradually accumulating in recent years, falling prices for solar modules would make the tracking no longer necessary or even unprofitable. This is definitely incorrect, as evidenced by DEGERenergie in his current investment and cost/benefit calculations. According to the Fraunhofer Institute for solar energy systems (Fraunhofer ISE) reach dual-axis tracking systems, which work on the basis of astronomical data, up to 27 percent more yield than rigidly installed solar modules.

Still higher is the excess returns with the sensor-controlled tracking systems by DEGERenergie, that the manufacturer has taken his current calculations. To win more solar energy than rigid systems, as evidenced by the many years of experience, up to 45 percent. Altavista understood the implications. In its calculations, DEGERenergie has included all costs incurred for the construction of a solar Park: inverter module costs, costs for support structures and foundations, equipment-related costs and other running costs. As default, the production was used by 1 GWh, so one million kilowatt hours of energy per year. Calculations under different conditions were made on this basis: location in southern Europe / location in Central Europe single- / dual-axis tracking systems / rigid systems different module prices (per WP 3.20 Euro 1 and euro between) different performance of the modules (165 WP / 215 WP / 240 WP) the results can sit up: 1 the use region has no influence on the cost/benefit analysis. Notwithstanding the use region (Central or southern Europe): The investments that are required to the given To achieve energy of 1 GWh per year, are with rigid systems up to 31 per cent higher than in the usage of DEGERenergie for systems.
