New solar system produces electricity at 5c / KWh
Sep 5th, 2011 at 7:49pm
"A new solar energy system will soon make it possible to produce electricity at a wholesale cost of 5-cents per kWh (kilowatt hour). This price is competitive with the wholesale cost of producing electricity using fossil fuels and a fraction of the current cost of solar energy."

"What differentiates SUNRGI's XCPV system from any other solar energy system includes: a propriety, integrated low profile technology for concentrating sunlight; a propriety technology and methodology for cooling solar cells; a low cost, modular system optimized for mass production; less land area or "roof top" requirements than typical solar energy systems; a technology roadmap for continuous improvement; low-cost field installation; and, a custom-designed system for easy operation and maintenance."

"XCPV prototypes have been built and successfully tested under both laboratory and field (outdoor) conditions." (from FAQ)

"SUNRGI's proprietary (patents pending) COOLMOVE™ heat transport technology swiftly prevents this undesirable heat build-up so that the PV solar cells are actually kept cooler than their nominal operating temperature, thus extending their useful life."
