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.
Maximum Reflector Concentration™ technology is our solution: a curved mirror – technically an asymmetrical parabolic trough – reflects as much concentrated sunlight onto the receiver as possible, no matter the sun’s angle.
Active Cell Cooling™ means we use water to draw heat away from the solar PV cells. The result: improved electrical performance of up to 10-15% and extended cell longevity. Solar PV cells become less efficient as they heat up. We want to ensure that our PV efficiency remains stable by reducing the cell temperature.
Generates both heat and electricity
