In the above design concept you see three Fresnel lenses focusing onto a rotor with six facets of PV. The rotor is spinning at approximately 300 RPM's and uses minimum power. The outer mirrors reflect off mirrors on the bottom of the unit and then back onto the bottom side of the rotor. This creates three bands of light at 120 degree offsets. Each facet moves in and out of the light so quickly that it remains excitated even when not under a band of light. This prototype is one of five identical parts that will make up a complete panel. Each panel will have one spinning rod with five rotors populated with PV and 15 lenses concentrating the light. When it production, we will make custom lenses that will require less focal depth.
