Introducing 40 Year
Solergy has developed the world’s first 40+ year lifetime, upgradeable solar energy system that can generate electricity at a cost as low as $0.01/kWhr.
Highest Electricity Generation
3x more than PV
Solergy generates 40% more electricity per installed kW every year compared to traditional PV. Upgrading the cells boosts power output and extends lifetime to 40-50 years. The unique module architecture enables cell upgrade directly in the field at low-cost.
Multijunction cells have already achieved efficiencies of 46% and improve by 1-2% absolute every year. With a 72% theoretical efficiency limit, significant efficiency gains will continue to be realized in the coming years.
NO NEED TO WAIT FOR BETTER TECHNOLOGY
Solergy’s upgradeable design means that you enjoy the full benefit of every technological improvement as it becomes available.
Lowest Cost of Energy
As low as $0.01/kWhr
Solergy generates electricity at a highly competitive cost without subsidies or tax breaks during the first 15 – 20 years of operation. After upgrade, the cost decreases to almost zero, resulting in virtually free electricity for an additional 20 – 30 years.
Now, integrating storage for 24x7 energy autonomy becomes economically feasible. The system also cogenerates heat at no additional cost which can be used for various applications such as hot water, process heat, agriculture, and higher efficiency desalination
Reliable and Resilient
Solergy is reliable in tough environmental conditions and resilient in the face of extreme weather events. Unpredictable weather extremes means extra care is needed to guarantee solar investments over many years.
Solergy endures and continues to operate reliably in a variety of challenging conditions including 200 km/hr winds, thermal shock and extreme temperatures, hail, corrosive marine environments, and more. The system has been certified to the demanding IEC62108 standard.
Aesthetic Italian Design
Solergy CPV harmoniously integrates into many environments with minimal visual and ecological impact. The all-glass lenses on the panels slowly track the sun throughout the day like a sunflower. Solar power can be as beautiful as it is clean.
A Sustainable Pathway to Terawatts of Solar
We must rapidly scale solar energy deployment from gigawatts to terawatts in order to serve growing energy demand while mitigating climate change. Traditional PV is a great start, but won’t get us there sustainably.
