Solar Panel Tracking Systems

The GMI Solar Tracker is the highest performing solar tracking system on the market today. This state-of-the-art technology ensures maximum financial benefit to homeowners.

Our approach at GMI is to provide our customers with the highest yielding photovoltaic (PV) system on the market. Our tracker technology is far superior to any ground mounted “bleacher” style or roof system, with solar production at least 240% greater than other systems. This pole-mounted system places the bifacial, transparent solar panels well above ground on a frame which tilts and turns toward the sun throughout the day. The bifacial panels maximize albedo (reflective power) to obtain a backside boost of solar energy. Our Solar Trackers are architecturally impressive, and are engineered for safety, strength, and increased production. Due to their placement above the ground, there is less of a negative impact from shading. In addition, all panel circuits are out of reach, eliminating accidental or intentional damage. The GMI Solar Tracker also occupies 60 percent less ground area than other ground mounted systems.

GMI Solar Tracking Technology

At the start of each day all GMI Solar Trackers will center and tilt vertically to face the rising sun in the east. During the winter, this start of day tilting will eliminate any snow or ice that may have accumulated overnight. The framed array of solar panels then tilts and turns every 5 minutes to track the sun across the sky. This continuous movement and vertical positioning also minimize any snow impact as the warmth from the panels and the angle of the array do not allow snow to accumulate. In addition, the GMI Solar Tracker is programmed to go into a flat “stow mode” during periods of high wind speeds.

GMI Solar Tracking Reliability

GMI uses 24 volt DC electric motors for our tracking systems. We have used electric tracking motors reliably for over 40 years. These motors have performed flawlessly throughout the winter months and are in fact still working as designed today. We manufacture our Solar Tracker to the highest standards in the business, and continually improve based on the latest technology.
