According to a release, with a focus of 1,000 suns onto a single focal point, heat management became an immediate concern. Sky Power Solutions has achieved yet another mile stone in the advancement and progression of the development of their standalone, solar concentrating electric generation system with successful test results from their proprietary heat sink technology to transfer and dissipate heat accumulated by the solar concentrating collector unit.
Utilizing a proprietary process, Sky Power said it has proven in recent testing to overcome all heat management issues associated with such high concentration of sunlight. This development not only enhances the overall operational efficiency of the unit, it also provides for an increase in heat capture for end user use.
The company noted that the High temperature output of 80 degrees Celsius from the focal, allows the Triple Junction, High Efficiency, CPV’s to operate within their normal operating temperature while providing free or reduced cost hot water to the household as a byproduct. The key to this solution, it added, was calibrating the volume metric flow rate of the coolant and the selection of such coolant to accommodate all environmental aspects of any and all installations, regardless of geographical location.
The company said Sky Power Solutions residential solar power station will have the ability to reduce the average user’s monthly electric grid consumption by up to 30-40 percent with zero emissions and a zero carbon footprint; using only the power of the Sun.
The Sky Power Solutions system can be installed in most backyards taking less than one third of the space of conventional Solar panels, the company said.
