GreenWing Energy Management Ltd. has signed an agreement with SolFocus Inc. for SolFocus to supply high-concentration photovoltaic (CPV) systems for GreenWing's large-scale solar power projects in the western U.S.
GreenWing intends to install the SolFocus CPV systems in both new utility-scale projects (20 MW to 300 MW) and larger distributed generation applications (1 MW to 20 MW).
The SolFocus CPV design employs a system of patented reflective optics to concentrate sunlight 650 times onto small, highly efficient solar cells. The SolFocus 1100S system uses approximately 1/1,000th of the active solar cell material of traditional photovoltaic panels, the companies note.
