Pan/Tilt Solar Tracker Powered by #Arduino Mega Doubles as Online Energy Monitor via ESP8266
The features of this solar tracker are:
Solar tracking: making sure the solar panels are aligned to the sun as long as possible.
Energy monitor: This measures the voltage and the current generated by the panels and calculates the generated Power and Energy.
Data logging: this sends the data from the energy monitor into the cloud of ThingSpeak.
Also there is an LCD to display the values of the energy monitor
