Sulas has developed a groundbreaking approach to solar tracking that uses no motors, gears or electronics. Our patented technology, the HelioDrive, uses the power of the sun, acting on phase change material through simple optics, to actuate a single moving part to accurately track the sun’s path across the sky. The large hydraulic-based force generated from the HelioDrive can be used to rotate a collection of photovoltaic (PV) panels, allowing them to follow the sun and increase their energy yield.
Simple and Reliable, the scalable and cost-effective HelioDrive can be easily integrated into any size pole-mounted or ground-mounted solar PV array. It is a modular stand-alone mechanism with only one moving part and does not require grid or battery power.
