Chart: Performance of a sonnen_system unit for 24 hrs vs. performance history of a fixed-mount photovoltaic system of the same system size.
The sonnen_system provides steady power throughout the day, from early morning to late afternoon. What does this even power curve mean for a utility.
The required amount of afternoon peak shaving can be realized with 30% fewer panels with a 2-axis tracked system when compared to fixed tilt arrays. Utilities achieve needed load leveling with better utilization of the inverter and wiring infrastructure. With the high capacity-factor and unmatched uptime of the sonnen_system, wholesale distributed generation is expanding into new terrain.
