The Microgrid module is for larger microgrid installations such as gated communities, industrial parks, and agricultural projects. Its four mirrors concentrate sunlight and deliver high temperature heat (greater than 100C) to thermal storage. Later the stored heat powers a turbogenerator to produce electricity any time day or night. Low temperature heat (less than 100C) is available for space heating, hot water heating and process heat.
Our FourFold™ module delivers heat and electricity. It is a hybrid solar panel that collects four fold more energy than conventional solar panels. Its four mirrors track the sun and fold to protect the mirrors when not in use. Besides electricity, the module delivers low temperature heat (less than 100C) for space heating and hot water heating of residences and small businesses.
