Solar Tracker Bearings 101: What they do, how they fail and how to avoid it

Wide adoption of solar photovoltaic technology for utility-scale energy production, in the US and worldwide, is driven largely by the low cost to produce solar energy, now often less than $0.03 per kWh in the U.S. Utility-scale solar power plants usually require trackers to maximize energy production and minimize the cost of energy. A core solar tracker component is the system’s bearings.

Should you install bifacial solar panels on tracking systems?

Solar trackers promise greater energy yield than their fixed-tilt counterparts because they keep modules constantly pointed toward the sun throughout the day. Similarly, bifacial modules can produce more power than their one-sided solar panel cousins because they have double the exposure level. So, is there a benefit to pairing two technologies that each ensure greater solar yield?
