Renewable and environmentally friendly energy sources, such as solar panels that utilize solar radiation, are tools to produce environmentally friendly energy that are very suitable to be applied in tropical countries rich in sunlight such as Indonesia. Solar panel technology innovations have been widely applied in several fields such as the fishing industry, transportation, and agriculture. This shows that solar panel technology innovation is needed because it has a wide reach and can be applied in almost all parts of Indonesia. One of the innovations needed in the development of solar panels is a solar tracker which functions to direct the solar panels to sunlight so that the energy produced can be maximized. Solar tracker has a big impact because with this tool it can have an impact on economic growth in Indonesia. This study aims to determine the implementation of technopreneurship and the development of solar tracker innovations to optimize the electrical power generated in Delanggu by utilizing light sensors to follow the direction of the sun. This article examines the challenges and obstacles faced in developing technology entrepreneurship. This paper also contains a comparative study of solar track products from China which have almost the same features as the technopreneurship approach and innovation system. The analysis is carried out by referring to the technopreneurship approach and the innovation system to understand the innovation management process and how to apply the designed technopreneurship model.
