The Solarus PowerCollector™ is a concentrating, hybrid solar photovoltaic and solar thermal panel. Concentrating means that it has a curved mirror to collect and reflect more sunlight throughout the day. Hybrid means that it combines solar photovoltaic (PV) generation of electricity with solar thermal (T) generation heat.

Applications where continuous heating such as space heating is required, a combi-tank is preferred. Solarus PowerCollectors heat up the tank, with supplimentary heat provided to the tank by an auxiliary source such as gas heater.
