Does any one track the sun? I have a 400 watt array and I have been wondering how much difference moving my solar panels would make. So I made a adjustable pole mount with a 100 watt panel. Today being the longest day of the year I did a test. I set 1 100 watt panel at 12° from horizontal and 180°south. I set the 100 watt panel on the tracker at 12° and 100°sse at 12 o'clock I moved it to 180°. I connected each panel to a separate dc watt meter. At 1:15 the stationary panel had made 274 watt hours. The one that I moved 1 time made 355 watt hours. Around 23% more. About the same as adding 1 more panel.
