World’s Smallest Footprint, Highest Energy Density; a True Dual Land Use Technology:
Highest energy density with the smallest footprint: Mechatron’s highly efficient design provides the highest energy density and the smallest footprint in the solar industry. The M18KD offers 1MWp per 4 acres. The result is the maximum dual-use of the land, given that the platform of the M18KD is 16 feet off the ground at its lowest point.
This means that the Mechatron tracker is the best fit for constrained sites including residential lots, commercial parking lots, wineries and other locations where land value is high and land availability options are minimal. Mechatron is working with landowners to restore the natural habitat surrounding the trackers to meet environmental requirements by state and local governments.
