Current Output

Polycrystalline silicon array, fixed pole-mountThese fixed arrays have the same configuration as the single axis and dual axis pole mounted tracking arrays included in the Kyocera “Solar Forest” at the Solar Centre.

They are installed at the optimal orientation for a fixed array: due north and at a tilt close to Alice Spring’s angle of latitude. The output from these fixed arrays can be directly compared to the outputs from the single and dual axis tracking systems.
