The system, called an AllSun Tracker, is a series of ground-mounted solar panels that track the sun and convert its light into electricity. “It’s different from the stationary system, in that it follows the sun,” said Will Kessler of ReVision Energy in Portland, the project’s assistant designer. The tracker uses a motor and a global positioning system to turn the solar panels from east to west and up and down to follow the sun’s elevation. (read more at the Lewiston Sun Journal)
