Adaptability of the Technology-
Concentrator Solar Cell Applications
The Solartech system could be adapted to produce electricity less expensively than standard solar cell array designs by focusing light at higher intensities over a reduced area. This method lowers the high cost of large areas of solar cells, replacing them with less costly focusing systems. Several companies are in development of solar cell concentrator modules. Although Solartech could produce electricity in this configuration, the more intelligent and market based approach is in conserving electricity using the sunlight directly for illumination, which offers a customer investment payback ten times faster than solar panels (photovoltaics) can provide.
