Mis-Tracking Woes…

Now that we here in Florida are into our 120% humidity and afternoon thunder storm season I have noticed some peculiar behaviour by the Solar Trackers.  With some dew or big raindrops on the clear lens the sensors would get hit with some reflected light and move erratically. I used some new white Krylon paint labeled safe to use on plastic.  They seem to perform a lot better now.  I used some 1″ painters tape around the middle of the clear jar.

 

   

This also protects the lid from UV break-down.  The clear jar is PETA but the yellow lid is made out of some plastic that is not UV resistant.
