Solar Power Solutions
The most familiar solar technology is photovoltaic (PV) cells that convert sunlight to electricity. The cells are grouped into modules that can be arrayed on roofs and other surfaces to provide electricity for buildings or homes. They can also be mounted in the ground to power streetlights or other infrastructure.
Concentrating solar power (CSP) uses mirrors or lenses to focus a large area of sunlight into a smaller beam that heats a working fluid to generate electricity or fuel another process. There are a wide variety of CSP technologies, including parabolic troughs, solar tower collectors, linear Fresnel reflectors and Stirling dishes.
In addition to providing a clean source of energy, solar can be used as a backup system during power outages. The utility rate structure in California, with its NEM 3.0 solar billing system that caps the value of exported electricity, makes pairing solar with battery storage more attractive than ever.
