Nexteer Automotive’s SunSteer™ brings unprecedented levels of reliability and efficiency to the alternative energy market.
The company utilized its industry leading automotive innovations and knowledge to design, engineer, test and manufacture SunSteer. We designed the solar actuator to significantly boost solar energy capture by accurately positioning solar arrays relative to the sun’s position throughout the daylight hours.
SunSteer’s design is focused on reliability, durability, functionality and efficiency.
Nexteer’s solar actuator is built in the U.S., at the company’s world headquarters and contains more than 90 percent U.S. content. SunSteer uses a precision built, high-efficiency ball screw/ball nut combination that provides operating efficiencies of 95 percent. This provides the ability to reliably move solar array loads with best-in-class energy consumption.
