Pole Mount Recommendations

gptgpt Registered Users Posts: 18
Hi, I'm looking at a Zomeworks 168 pole mount passive tracker that will hold 6-8 Suntech 270's. As the total amount of panels I want to install is 14, my question is is there a less expensive solution than buying 2 of these? Thanks

    Does it need to be a tracker ? What if you had 2, just offset 20 deg from each other? That's going to be a pretty big sail sticking up too. I'd suggest Powerfab, but I've got only a couple months on them, but they did hold up in a gusty wind last month.

    Yes, it has to be at least a passive tracker. I'll look into Powerfab. Any idea how they compare to Zomeworks?
