For areas requiring greater power density, the Power Pole is the answer. This is a pole that holds up to 10 Spin Cells, or 10KWp, in a footprint of 150 SF. The Spin Cells are placed with mathematical precision to make sure there is minimal shading. This not only creates significantly great power density, but also removes the concern of floods, while mitigating the environmental impact.
The next unit developed will be a 500W unit for developing markets. There are many people who burn kerosene, coal or firewood for their minimal needs. Our vision is to provide clean, renewable solar energy at a cost that is lower than the current financial burden by using a lease model.
If you concentrate sunlight, you get more light in a smaller area of PV. The problem has always been the associated heat. Imagine holding your hand steady beneath a magnifying glass. The heat would soon become unbearable. That is what happens to PV under solar concentration. Now imagine moving your hand slowly beneath the magnifying glass. You still get the same amount of light, but you avoid the build up of heat. By spinning, the PV naturally cools by design. Simple.
