Entech Solar, Inc. focuses on the development of renewable energy technologies for the commercial, industrial and utility markets. The company’s designs in concentrating solar modules provide both electricity and thermal energy as part of its ThermaVolt product line and electricity only as part of its SolarVolt product line. In January 2010, the company launched its collimating tubular skylight. The company’s target customers would be both distributors and end-users of energy. Its ThermaVolt and SolarVolt would perform in locations that receive a minimum of 5 kilowatt-hours per square meter per day of direct sunlight. In the United States, the company would focus on customers located in the southwestern states, primarily Texas, California, Arizona, New Mexico, Nevada, Utah and Colorado. Products The company’s products would incorporate the ENTECH CPV technology. This technology can be used to develop solar energy products and systems. ENTECH solar modules can generate the same electrical power as non-concentrating solar cells but with much less silicon. The company is in the process of developing two main product offerings, ThermaVolt and SolarVolt solar systems, and has launched its tubular skylight product. ThermaVolt ThermaVolt is being designed as a roof- or ground-mounted module that produces both electricity and thermal energy. ThermaVolt is comprised of proprietary modules that concentrate sunlight onto solar cells, with the modules deployed on a dual-axis tracking system. ThermaVolt solar modules are designed with a size and weight similar to traditional flat-plate (non-concentrating) solar panels readily available in the industry. The heat exchanger enables the ThermaVolt system to capture both heat and light from the sun and, consequently, to deliver thermal energy, as well as electricity increasing the system’s energy output. SolarVolt SolarVolt is designed to be a roof- or ground-mounted, electricity producing solar system comprised of its proprietary air-cooled modules and is also designed to be deployed on a dual-axis tracking system. The company’s use of dual-axis tracking system increases electricity production by ensuring that the system faces the sun at an optimal angle throughout the day. Typical system sizes for the SolarVolt product would range from 1 megawatt to 10 megawatt. Tubular Skylight Technology The company’s patented tubular skylight technology redirects sunlight from the sky to the work area beneath the skylight in a process known as collimation, which increases the optical transmission of natural light compared to conventional tubular skylights. Suppliers The company’s raw materials are made to its proprietary specifications by vendors such as 3M, DuPont, and Tyco. History Entech Solar, Inc. was founded in 1984.
