The Renewable Energy Technology Center (RET-Center) in Windsor showcases different solar systems and educates and trains about renewable energy technologies, and solar installations. It has operating solar PV and solar thermal systems, plus demos.  
The RET-Center houses the solar company Green Sun Rising, a leading solar design, development and implementation company.  

The RET-Center has its own 3.33 kW tracker in grid-connect operation. The tracker has two axes of rotation:
• automatic - for daily movements East - West
• manual - for seasonal adjustments North - South.
In addition, RET-Center operates a 5 kW solar carport and a 2 kW fixed, rooftop mounted photovoltaic array. The total RET-Center's 10 kW solar power is matching the Ontario's micro-FIT program upper production limit.

Visible on the picture 2-collector, dark-blue solar heating system produces hot water for the RET-Centers own use.

Our mounts4solar ( mounting systems and our Tracker4solar ( ) tracking system are manufactured locally in the factory behind the RET-Center, made in Ontario.
