This is a PV rack design that is made from locally-accessible renewable materials, has a 25-year lifetime, is easy to fabricate, meets Canadian structural building codes, and is very low cost. The system allows users to manually adjust the tilt angle within a couple minutes. It can be scaled up to meet the energy demand of large scale applications, and serves as a practical system for agrivoltaics.
