Solar PV panel with encapsulated tracking mirrors unveiled at Intersolar


Canadian solar product developer ISP Solar introduced its breakthrough ‘Intensifying Solar Panels’ at Intersolar in San Diego, California, today.

ISP’s patented panel-level intensifying solar technology incorporates conic mirrors that “intensify the sun’s rays 20-times.” ISP modules then require just 1/20th of the PV cells of traditional panels to deliver the same performance. The tracking mirrors are encapsulated in the panels.

The ISP module incorporates single-junction monocrystalline silicon with improved collector resistance, a large bus conductor and conic reflective troughs. The module system is ideal for commercial rooftops and utility-scale installations

“Our goal is to make solar panels both more affordable and greener. By breaking the affordability barrier, we will deliver a faster return on investment for anybody considering renewable energy,” said ISP’s co-CEO and product inventor Raja Singh Tuli.

“Developed over four years of research and covered by multiple patents, ISP’s technology will help drive down the cost of solar energy and accelerate its adoption,” said ISP Solar’s Co-CEO, Suneet Singh Tuli. “Our work on making the world’s most affordable internet access devices led us to see how important an affordable energy supply is, and how that remains an enormous challenge for too many of the world’s people. We have rededicated ourselves to solving that problem by cutting the cost of solar power in half.”

ISP modules come with a full 25-year performance and equipment guarantee.

The product is expected to begin delivery in the summer of 2020.
