The idea behind Cool Earth Solar is to remove any perceived limits on solar power. This means designing solar technology so that first, it competes economically against all forms of electricity generation and second, that there are no limiting bottlenecks in material or process that prevent the scaling up of solar as much as we want to address our energy needs.
“At Cool Earth Solar, we are reshaping solar technology, literally and philosophically. Our unique concentrated-photovoltaic (CPV) technology is designed to ‘tread lightly’ on the landscape and to deliver solar power at a low cost to the environment and in dollars and cents,” said CEO Rob Lamkin. Cool Earth Solar's CPV is an inflated solar concentrator made primarily of inexpensive and free materials. This design approach reduces material requirements as well cost and time.
Cool Earth Solar was introduced to the Silicon Valley Small Business Development Center (SBDC) at a seminar hosted at iGate, one of... Read More
