Solar Panel Rotation System
Solar energy is becoming a more sought after resource as consumers desire to become more eco-friendly. Solar panels collect energy from the sun and store it in batteries for consumers to use as is necessary. In order for solar panels to be most efficient, they must be perpendicular to the sun. Since the position of the sun changes with the time of day and the changing of the season, a solar panel's efficiency will increase when it is rotated to follow the sun. My senior design project is to create a rotational system that will allow the solar panel to be perpendicular to the sun throughout the ...
