SolFocus has completed a concentrating photovoltaic (CPV) installation at the Institute of Concentration Photovoltaic Systems' (ISFOC) 3 MW municipal power production facility.
SolFocus is the first of three companies to complete a contract with ISFOC in the first phase of the project. SolFocus has installed two distinct CPV power plants: 200 kW at Puertollano and 300 kW at Almoguera.
The ISFOC project was created both as a municipal power plant and a proving ground for CPV technology. The original contract was awarded to SolFocus in late 2006, shortly after the creation of ISFOC as a power-producing testing facility for high-efficiency CPV technology.
