With an optional upgrade, users of the Sky Power Solutions’ Residential, Standalone unit will have the ability to capture the heat resulting from the concentration of solar power for use within the Sky Power Solutions collectors to provide hot water to their house, working in conjunction with the existing installed water heater, thereby reducing the amount of electricity users’ need for water heating. "This helps with the heat management issue encountered with the development of the dish, as well as providing users the additional benefit of electricity savings by getting free hot water," says Rich Ralston, with Sky Power Solutions Corp. He goes on to say, "We feel we can capture most ALL the energy in our process and pass it on to our users for beneficial use."
The residential solar power station will have the ability to reduce the average user’s monthly electric grid consumption by up to 30-40% with ZERO emissions and a ZERO carbon footprint, using only the power of the Sun. Visually appealing, the Sky Power Solutions system can easily be installed in most backyards taking less than one third of the space of conventional Solar panels. The entry level price point for a Sky Power Solutions-Concentrated Solar electric system is estimated to be $5,000 at release. Multiple units can be combined for increased capacity.
