BIG SUN Energy's new dual axis tracker + bifacial module shows up to 60% gains in solar power generation.

BIG SUN Energy's patented iPV Tracker, when compared with a fixed tilt system, has shown a 30% increase in power generation. When iPV Tracker is combined with a bi-facial module there is a further 10% increase. BIG SUN Energy has further researched various underlying surfaces -- discovering the rates of reflection with natural ground cover, cement or mirror-like reflective surfaces. Reflection rates of grass, sand or mud will increase the power generation between 5-10%, while white cement will provide a 15% increase. When mirror-like reflective surfaces such as water or snow are used, the gains reach 20-30%. By installing an iPV Tracker over a water surface using bi-facial modules, the increase in yields achieved can reach 60% over fixed tilt systems utilizing mono-facial modules.
