Solar Heating, Cooling, and Desalination.
High equipment cost has hampered the spread of solar technology as utility savings do not recoup the excessive initial costs. Solar water heating has remained largely unchanged since the last World War. During our time with Start-Up Chile we built a functional prototype of a Solar Panel while removing costly material and intricate manufacturing processes. This extremely affordable technology has the potential to proliferate solar heating following the example of CFL lamps.
We have initiated development of medium-scale solar desalination targeted at remote communities and coastal towns.
