This paper is concerned with a portable automatic solar panel, mounted on a mobile trailer. The benefits of a mobile solar panel versus one mounted in a fixed position are highlighted. The paper focuses mostly on the efficiency of the solar panel, in relation to the sunlight angle with respect to the panel surface. The results of the analysis performed demonstrate the higher efficiency of the panel mounted on a sun tracking device with quantifiable differences reported in the paper.
