The number of large-scale PV systems being built with solar trackers is quickly increasing.  So are technology improvements and the number of players in that segment. As TaiyangNews is working on its first market survey on solar trackers, providing details on players and products, we are preparing our first conference on this topic to discuss the latest updates in this field. At the conference, we will also launch our market survey.
