Dish Stirling Solar Thermal Enters Production
Stirling Energy Systems, is starting up production of a new kind of solar electricity generator that it claims is "the world's most efficient solar-electric generating technology." Instead of using photovoltaic technology, these dishes concentrate solar heat to generate electricity.
On April 27, in Phoenix, Arizona, a new 25 kW unit, along with a new manufacturing facility to mass-produce the dishes was unveiled.
Ten more dishes are planned to be built in 2005 for Arizona Public Service, and 40 more are scheduled for release next year for installation in Southern Nevada at a U.S. Department of Energy dish demonstration project.
