247Solar Plants support power project sizes ranging from 400 kWe (~4 acres) to large central power plants of virtually unlimited capacity. They are deployable on uneven ground and use no water/steam, molten salts or oils to minimize environmental impact and streamline permitting. With capacity factors approaching 100%, 247Solar Plants offer predictable and stable electricity prices over time, without the need for backup facilities. Because all 247Solar components are pre-engineered and factory-produced, projects are low-risk and financeable, and project cycles are short.
Alternative to Gas Peakers and Batteries
Unlike PV and wind, 247Solar Plants operate instantaneously, day or night, delivering power as needed, not just when the sun shines or the wind blows. The responsiveness of 247Solar Plants to grid voltage and frequency fluctuations rivals that of batteries, making them the natural, lower-cost alternative to gas peakers and batteries to fill in when PV and wind can’t.
- Turnkey Systems: 247Solar Plants are pre-engineered modules that use mostly proven technologies for higher reliability, lower technical risk, and easier financing.
- Off-the-Shelf Components: 247Solar Plants use standardized, mass-produced components that require minimal custom engineering, allowing for rapid site assembly, shorter project cycles and lower component costs with volume.
- Low Maintenance: Simple components, proven technologies, and few moving parts mean high reliability and low maintenance. No on-site operators are required, and local talent can easily operate and maintain the system.
