The following is an artical I found about tracking solar rays. I understand fixed panels are used for DHW because of the angle hear in the Northwest. Is it possible to use this technology to heat your home or is the array just too massive to be economical??

by SI Staff on Thursday 01 May 2008

Energy Innovations Inc. has announced the immediate availability of RayTracker GC, a single-axis solar tracker for ground-mount and carport-mount applications that maximizes the energy yield of a photovoltaic system.

The company says RayTracker supports a wide range of PV panel types and was developed with a focus on performance, reliability and installed cost. Concurrent with its general availability, RayTracker is being deployed as part of installations totaling over 2.6 MW.

The system uses factory pre-assembled parts to reduce in-field installation time and labor; employs microprocessor and GPS-based controllers that require no adjustment or calibration; and has a 25-year design life with documented component and system-level testing. RayTracker also features proprietary tracker-to-tracker shade-avoidance technology, precision distributed actuation for increased tracking accuracy over the entire installation, and low actuation energy budget.
