Technology

Our solar products employ an overlapping set of patent-pending innovations in optics, mechanics, and array geometry to create the first practical concentrating photovoltaic (CPV) panel.

Our OptifoldTM reflector combines one-bounce focusing, an obstruction-free aperture, and built-in light-vector sensing in a one-piece optical system that solves many problems in conventional CPV and enables highly cost-effective manufacture.

Our ArcSolTM technology takes advantage of Optifold's compact tiling shape and light-sensing to create autonomous heliotropic elements assembled in close-packed arrays within panels to provide breakthrough power efficiency for rooftop applications.

Two of the patent applications covering the ArcSol panel have been published and can be viewed here.
