article description
The support structure of CPV and PV trackers and heliostats are one of the most important cost elements of a solar plant because they typically contribute of ∼20% - ∼30% to the total cost of the system. Consequently, it is important to reduce the cost of solar trackers or heliostats as much as possible to improve the economic viability of a solar plant.
