How much power can I generate using a DEGERtracker?

Power generation depends on a number of factors:

  • the capacity of the system
  • efficiency of the modules
  • installation location and irradiation intensity

Here's an exemplary calculatin for the single-axis model DEGERtracker 8.5:

DEGERtracker 8.5 with 6 solar panels of 200Wp (1.2 kWp) each.

The basis is a specific average yield in Germany for fixed systems of about 1000 kWh/kWp. Using a DEGERtracker 8.5 you can obtain an additional yield of 20-30%, if you maintain the required spacing between the individual systems, in order to prevent the units form shading each other; in other words, in this example, you can achieve a calculated maximum yield of 1200-1300 kWh/kWp.

What special approval procedures are required for open area systems?

If you want to develop an agricultural terrain with tracking systems, you must submit a so-called project development plan. Because this building law is a state matter, there are naturally regional differences, and the sometimes expensive process can drag on for months. Unfortunately we cannot offer detailed information and recommend that you obtain local information.
