Skyline Solar Inc. is developing a silicon-based PV system to reduce energy cost and improve scalability of solar energy. The system achieves high gain through a combination of high capacity factor and optical concentration. The design approach drives innovation not only into the details of the system hardware, but also into manufacturing and deployment related costs. The result of this approach is a modular PV system whose manufacturing relies only on currently existing silicon solar cell, module, reflector and aluminum parts supply chain as well as turnkey PV module production lines and metal fabrication industries that already exist at scale. Furthermore, with a high gain system design, the generating capacity of all components is multiplied leading to a rapidly scalable system. The product design and commercialization strategy cooperate synergistically to promise dramatically lower LCOE with substantially lower risk relative to materials-intensive innovations.
