Advanced Technology & Research Corp. (ATR) is a Maryland-based engineering firm with a 38-year history in military systems, robotics, and automation equipment. The company has recently developed a suite of solar power systems for small-scale commercial and residential applications.
All ATR Solartech systems are produced in Maryland and feature state-of-the-art sun-tracking technology for enhanced energy production from photovoltaic panels. The company offers distributed solar power generation systems for lighting and utility poles, ground-mounted systems for residential clean energy production, solar-powered electric vehicle charging stations, and solar components of hybrid wind-solar systems.
Three of ATR’s solar “trackers” recently took sail at the Port of Baltimore’s Wallenius Wilhemsen Mid-Atlantic Terminal. The dual-panel, post-mounted solar trackers will power two all-electric vehicles that transport employees and materials around the marine terminal facility. The trackers use GPS-enabled mechanism to produce 25-45 percent more electricity than conventional fixed solar panels. Once fully charged, the EVs will be able to run three to five days before recharging is necessary.
ATR also recently installed 12 dual-panel solar trackers along Route 32 in Clarksville, Maryland to supply power for the River Hill Neighborhood Center and Pool. The system is expected to provide an average of 33 kilowatt-hours (kWh) per day.
Many more examples of Maryland success stories are also available.
