247Solar Plants operate around the clock regardless of weather by storing daytime solar energy as low-cost heat, instead of as electricity in high-cost batteries.
Percentage of total hours/year that each technology operates
247Solar is a game-changing way to produce electricity. 247Solar plants generate electricity 24/7 at costs competitive with all other forms of power generation. They overcome most disadvantages of existing conventional and renewable sources with a scalable solution that provides clean, widely-deployable, super-reliable, high-value power.
Mostly well-proven, off-the- shelf, best-in- class equipment
247Solar Plants are identical, factory-made and quickly assembled, using mostly proven components. Each 247Plant is easy to maintain.
Our desire for a clean environment represents a powerful sense of destiny and hope for the future.
247Solar Plants have no known environmental drawbacks. They use no oils or molten salts (just air) and little water, for rapid permitting.
Pre-engineered, standardized 247Solar Plants are quickly site assembled, like wind machines.
Each 247Solar Plant requires as little as 4 acres. They can be independently located remotely as small as 400 kWe, or as utility-scale farms of 100s of 247Plants
Entire 247Solar Plants are factory-produced in high quality conditions for standardized assembly
Under 12 cents/kWh initially, then below 7 cents with factory production
247Solar Plants are quickly installed and less-expensive per kWh than PV. Low CAPEX and O&M mean strong ROI/NPV and cash flow.
247Solar Plants operate automatically and are remotely monitored to maximize ROI
247Solar Plants generate electricity at times of highest demand and price. They stabilize the grid better and more cheaply than batteries.
Originated at MIT, funded by the US Department of Energy
Breakthrough Technology, Global Applications
247Solar plants are currently being planned around the world.
247Solar plants can be deployed as a single, off-grid system of 400 kilowatts plus 1.5 million BTU/hour of useful heat, or as utility-scale farms with hundreds of plants. They can be built on uneven ground and have no known environmental drawbacks.
