247SOLAR PLANTS PROVIDE INDUSTRY LEADING RESULTS

Does your power project require that you produce power from solar 24 hours per day everyday of the year, i.e., baseload power? Or does it require that you produce power from solar just during peak times, i.e., is it a peaker operating 4 to 6 hours per day? Or is the requirement somewhere in between, say, 7-9 hours or so a day from solar, i.e., an intermediate power plant?

247Solar Plants come in four standard models to address each of these three basic types of power generation systems, i.e., peakers, intermediate power, and baseload power. The smallest, 400 kWe, can operate as a baseload plant with a solar capacity factor of 60-80% 1 . The next two sizes, 600 kWe and 800 kWe, operate as intermediate plants on solar power for 7-12 hours per day, e.g., some daytime hours as well as some morning or evening peak hours. The largest size, 1000 kWe (1 megawatt) operates on solar power primarily during morning and evening peak hours. All models are designed to burn fuel, if desired, to extend their operation and/or to enable them to be firmly dispatchable, i.e., to operate whenever required. Also, all three models can perform as “spinning reserves” by operating the turbines continuously at a very low rate (and very low solar or fuel consumption) in order to respond instantly to fluctuating demand or sudden drops in voltage on the grid (e.g., when a cloud crosses over a PV array). Models can be mixed and matched in systems of multiple 247Solar Plants to maximize the total revenue stream. The turbines can be shipped from the factory to burn either gaseous or liquid fuels.

PROJECTS & APPLICATIONS

247Solar Inc. currently is entertaining interest from prospective customers who have a minimum project size of 10 megawatts, which is 25 247Solar Plants of 400 kWe each. Ideally, the customer will intend to build power projects considerably larger, either now or in the future. However, we would be happy to discuss smaller initial projects, which depending on circumstances we may beable to service. We work with you and your team to thoroughly understand our technology and to train you to be as dependent on us or as independent of us as you care to be in the deployment and operation of 247Solar Plants. Together with your engineers, we modify our standard 247Solar Plant design, if required, to adapt to local requirements. We recommend that you build an initial 247Solar Plant first followed by the balance of the project. We supply a few of the key, proprietary components and, with you, co-develop a local supply chain for as many components as possible to minimize costs. One of the major advantages of 247Solar Plants is that they can be deployed as a single, standalone Plant for distributed solar power generation; or, like PV and wind, as dozens or 100s of Plants as central power “farms”; as well as power project sizes between these two extremes.
