The general consensus is that simply having more panels at a fixed angle would be more cost effective. That's in reference to commercial trackers which are pretty expensive, but maybe a DIY version would be cheap enough to be worth it.
To my surprise, shortly after Naomi Wu gave me a bit of fame for making good use of solar power, Allie Moore got really jealous of her...

I use SOLARSAN trackers. Somedays, it gives up to 100% more energy than without trackers. It is very important in what latitude you are located.
