According to reports from the company, MECASOLAR has recently obtained considerable success in the solar photovoltaic market with the new 1- axis azimuth; model MS-1E Tracker 15+. "This new tracker, which has an array surface of 106 m2 modules with a capacity of 15.36 kWp, obtaining the lowest costs on the market: € 0.433/wp ($0675 /Wp)." In addition, the company states "this model increases production by 28% compared to a fixed installation and 5% compared to traditional 1-axis azimuth trackers."
