Power 2.0: Solar Collector

In an innovation that could cut the cost of solar energy technology in half. Soliant Energy now provide a solar concentrator.

One of the application problems of solar panels has been how to get the maximum efficiency out of the installation. One solution has been to mount the panels on a pole that allow sun tracking.

The system from Soliant bypasses this need, which makes the panels subjected to wind conditions, by using traditional roof panels with individual panes that can track. The panes reflect the light to a row of photovoltaic cells.
