The electricity is an essential factor in everyday society, and this consumption is increasing exponentially. Beyond this fact, there is also concern about the impacts suffered by the environment, caused by the current system of generation electric power system. Systems for solar, renewable and clean energy is one of the most used and implemented around the globe. This article presents a proposal for a solar tracking system installed with photovoltaic (PV) panels to connection Grid Tie low voltage, named Sunflower. The main content of this research focuses on the operating principles of Sunflower, as well as the development of a prototype Sunflower in reduced scale. The principal experiment focuses on tests between the Sunflower prototype and photovoltaic (PV) panels, to compare the efficiency of solar tracking. The deductions, based on the research tests, confirm that the Sunflower prototype is more efficient than photovoltaic (PV) panel. Furthermore, the cost of energy production is close to the price of electricity, for residential customers in Brazil.
