High Gain Solar in Water Operations
Tri-S Environmental performed a water utility segment evaluation for solar power augmentation for a start-up high gain solar company located in Silicon Valley, California. High gain solar combines high efficiency silicon cells and tracking that increases energy yield and includes durable reflective materials, low cost panels, convection cooling and streamlined installation. These scalable systems are well-suited for water treatment and pumping plants for they generate 30% more system level energy output and have 67% fewer parts than other systems. The lower installed cost per peak Watt and the higher energy yield per peak Watt are the keys to attractive economics for water system applications.
