Single Axis Trackers
We prefer that the panels be fixed horizontally. If this is not possible, the angle of the trackers should not exceed 50° from horizontal.
Avoid flying early in the morning/late in the afternoon when the sun is in the lowest position to minimise the inter-row glare.
If the dual-axis tracker is higher than <5 m - please follow the rooftop guidelines and, if needed, increase the altitude to ensure every tracker is entirely visible on the visual and thermal photos.
