RE: [hreg] Solar Plan in Austin
The 4 trackers are from Zomeworks, 2040 Watts each. 24x85Watt Spire modules. The system is one we built in 2006 south of Glen Rose.

I wondered about that also. I guess the additional solar harvested was attractive. The Spanish company - ercam.es - is setting up with robotic welders to weld the trusses, upon which the panels are mounted.

I'm surprised the cost of trackers is still trading well. I wonder if anyone has analyzed fixed panels pointed to produce most during utility peaks.
A study undertaken by solar proponents in Austin, concludes, and will recommend, that Austin implement 400-600 Mega Watts over the next 7 years. San Antonio has started on a project that will install 400 mega watts of trackers in 4 years. I assume tracking because the utilities need to address the cost of peak load.
