Cost-Competitive With All Power Technologies
247Solar Plants generate power competitively with all other clean power sources today and with traditional power sources tomorrow. Uniquely, they offer a low-risk, financeable, and rapidly-deployable plug-and- play clean power solution with 24/7 operation. When co-deployed with PV and wind installations, they act like batteries, filling in for PV and wind’s intermittency by stabilizing the grid with the quick responsiveness of microturbines to voltage fluctuations and on-demand power. Independently, they offer higher ROI/NPV than PV or wind for projects from 400 kWe (~4 acres) to utility scale.
247Solar Plants, which are pre-engineered modules, require minimal custom engineering, using mostly proven components for higher reliability, lower technical risk, and relative ease of project financing. Standardized, mass-produced components allow for rapid site assembly, shorter project cycles and lower component costs over time. 247Solar’s simple air-based system operates at atmospheric pressure and requires no water/steam or molten salts, reducing complexity and lowering CAPEX and O&M costs.
