SUNRGI, a solar energy system designer and developer, has launched XCPV (Xtreme Concentrated Photovoltaics) – a system that concentrates the equivalent of more than 1,600 times the sun's energy onto solar cells. The company claims that the patents- pending technology will make it possible to produce electricity at a wholesale cost of 5 cents per kWh.

‘We expect the SUNRGI system to become available for both on- and off-grid power applications, worldwide, in 12 to 15 months,’ says Robert S. Block, co-founder and principal of SUNRGI.

According to SUNRGI, the XCPV system comprises a low-profile technology for concentrating sunlight; a technology and methodology for cooling solar cells; a low-cost, modular system optimized for mass production; less land area or rooftop requirements than typical solar energy systems; a technology roadmap for continuous improvement; low-cost field installation; and a custom-designed system for easy operation and maintenance.
