Solergy manufactures a 40+ year lifetime, upgradeable solar energy system that generates energy at 50%
the cost of PV. Solergy’s Concentrated PV (CPV) panels provide double the efficiency of traditional PV
while yielding 40% more electrical energy than fixed PV and also cogenerating heat at no extra cost.
Because Solergy’s panels can be upgraded in the field, the customer enjoys the benefits of the latest solar
cell technology instead of being ‘locked in’ for 25 years with a standard panel. In addition to offering a 40-50
year lifetime, the technology is 99.9% recyclable making it the most environmentally sustainable solar
energy solution available today. Solergy’s technology is protected by 8 international patent families,
numerous trade secrets, and has further patents in development.
Solergy also offers 2-axis trackers for use with traditional PV panels which increases project returns by 30% compared to fixed PV and opens up new application possibilities in dense urban environments and also in agricultural settings.
Solergy is going to market with European energy giants and with well financed project developers building
multi-MW projects. Solergy has been
operating systems in the field since 2012 and the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) together
with the Electric Power Research Institute (EPRI) have documented 90% performance ratios from a Solergy
installation near Denver, Colorado, USA.
Solergy’s system offers a 40+ year lifetime, upgradeability, twice the efficiency, optional co-generation of heat, and generates electricity at as low as half the cost of traditional PV. Because the system is 99.9% composed of easily recyclable glass and metal and it offers a long, high-performance lifetime, Solergy CPV is the most environmentally sustainable solar technology that exists today.
