Solar Robot Heads To Jail

Reposted from Solar Love (with minor edits): That has to be one of the most intriguing solar power headlines of the year. Fortunately, there’s nothing untrue about it (even if the story isn’t exactly what you have in mind). QBotix (previously covered on CleanTechnica) combines robotics technology with solar power … [continued]

Will Robot Trackers Reduce the Costs of Solar?

  Sunflowers, and many other plants, have evolved their own natural tracking systems enabling them to follow the sun’s trajectory throughout the day in order to maximize their absorption of sunlight… and thus, survive and proliferate. Applying this concept to photovoltaics with mechanical solar trackers is not by any means … [continued]
