JX Crystals is manufacturing and installing low cost 3Sun mirror modules in
China. A 100kW demonstration is under construction in Shanghai with an additional 300kW
now on order.
3Sun product lowers the cost of PV by replacing 2/3 of the expensive Silicon solar cells
in a module with low cost metal mirrors. Performance is equivalent to conventional single
crystal silicon modules at half the cost.
below show the 100kW system in operation on a Shanghai rooftop and some other 3Sun mirror
module demonstrations in Shanghai China, Albuquerque NM, Pasadena CA and Issaquah WA using
2-axis and novel 1-axis Carousel solar trackers.
