TECHNOLOGY

The 247Solar plant is a LOW-pressure Brayton cycle power tower system that converts sunlight to heat, which in turn powers an off-the- shelf microturbine to produce electricity.

How It Works

247Solar plants generate electricity 24/7 at costs competitive with all other forms of power generation, while overcoming most disadvantages of existing conventional and renewable sources. They store energy as heat at a fraction of the cost of batteries and use no water/steam, oils or molten salts.

247Solar Plant Design

Each plant requires as little as 4 acres and can be built on uneven ground. They can be deployed as a single, off-grid system of 300 kilowatts or as large utility-scale farms. Co-location with PV and wind farms can convert entire facilities from intermittent output to 24/7 power.

Breakthroughs

Less expensive to build per kWh than PV, 247Solar plants offer low CAPEX and O&M costs and attractive margins. They require minimal custom engineering, using mostly proven components for reduced risk and relative ease of financing.

Core Components

247Solar plants use mostly commercially-proven components that are mass-producible and can be manufactured locally in many cases. Simple components with few moving parts means local talent can easily operate and maintain the system.
