Solar Power International (SPI) is a solar power trade show and conference. This annual, business-to-business event is attended by nearly 24,000 professionals from 125+ countries. With one out of five attendees coming from outside the U.S., SPI is truly a global event. In 2011, over 1,100 companies from all vertical markets in the solar power spectrum will exhibit in a space of more than 1 million square feet.
Sky Power reported that it will display a working prototype of the Sky Power Solutions’ Residential, Standalone, Solar Concentrating, Electric Power Generation system in booth number 6056, in the PV Cells and Module area of SPI at the Dallas Convention Center, 650 S. Griffin St., Dallas, Texas 75202. Company representatives will be available to answer questions during the event. "We are excited to exhibit the Sky Power system at SPI. Taking about 1/3 the space of standard PV solar panels and the ability to derive heat from the unit makes it very efficient. In addition to Zero Emissions, users can capture this energy to heat water, further reducing energy consumption from their utility company," Says Rich Ralston, Public Relations and Media Manager for Sky Power Solutions.
The Company noted that its residential solar power station will have the ability to lower the average user’s monthly electric grid consumption by up to 30-40 percent with zero emissions and a zero carbon footprint; using only solar power. Visually appealing, the Sky Power Solutions system can 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.
Sky Power reported that electric consumption in the U.S. is increasing at a rate that will outpace the anticipated expansion of the US Electric Grid’s capacity and Sky Power Solutions is poised for expansion into the Residential Electric Power Generation market to allow end users to generate and return 30-40 percent of their electric usage back to the grid using "Net-Metering" and the Sky Power System.
