The Russians developed an Orbitals pattern that swung 'high' and low in a regular pattern, to provide decent coverage of the northern stretches of the USSR. It took several sattilites to provide 24x7 coverage, but they managed.
The Chinese may use a similar orbit for their soletta array, to give the coverage they want.

tit .. seen from the mirror the sun would rotate around (just like the 
sun rotates around you here on eath once a day) - so the direction to 
the sun changes all the time

but the direction to the place you are supposed to light stays the same

so you have to turn the mirror all the time in order to reflect the 
light from the moving sun to the fixed target
