Pyron Solar develops and manufactures low profile concentrated photovoltaic (CPV) solar power systems that are suspended in and cooled by water and designed for utility and commercial scale projects. The Pyron low-profile system has been designed to provide an efficient and cost-effective source of renewable power and can employ potable water and wastewater.
The Pyron Solar system is producing power from an array of solar cells exposed to highly concentrated sunlight. Achieving high concentration levels while maintaining low cell temperatures is a key technical issue to commercially viable CPV systems. Floating on water provides significant cooling and balance advantages and therefore results in exceptionally high power outputs per each solar cell. A dual axis tracking system allows the lenses to be pointed towards the sun at all times to capture as much sunlight as possible during the day. The Pyron Solar low-profile system has been designed to provide an efficient and cost-effective source of solar power with the benefit of a very small footprint. Only 3.1 acres of land are needed to build 1MW of solar power.
