DIFFERENTIAL SETTLEMENT + ALL TERRAIN TRACKERS
OVERCOME SURFACE CHANGES WITH THE RIGHT ACTION PLAN.
Shifting ground underneath a utility-scale solar site can damage trackers and equipment, leading to costly repairs or even complete demolition of a project. One common way a foundation can change post-installation is through a process called differential settlement.
This webinar will explore differential settlement in detail and provide ways to overcome the process for a utility-scale solar installation. With the right equipment and action plan, a solar farm can withstand surface changes from differential settlement and stay functioning for decades.
After watching the webinar, you’ll gain knowledge on the following topics:
- An overview of differential settlement (when and how it occurs)
- Implementing measures to withstand a shifting foundation
- The importance of tracker design in accommodating foundation changes
- An understanding of a structure’s limitations during a differential settlement event
