Our product

Our 10 MW to 50 MW CSP plants take advantage of distribution line capacities and addressing a global market. Suntrough projects require only 60 acres for 10 MW; this eliminates the development barriers of obtaining large monolithic sites for larger solar thermal power plants. Suntrough makes solar thermal generation affordable and accessible to global customers with reduced permitting barriers for installations, a rapid three-month construction period, and the bankability of trough technology.

Product advantages:

  • Solar thermal generation uses heat recovery systems that enable industrial chilling, low-grade heat utilization, and desalinization; PV generation does not
  • Smaller project size simplifies land procurement, facilitates financing, and enables faster permitting and development
  • Delivery of containerized power block components minimizes expensive field construction work
  • Smaller transmission capacity requirements allow for fast and inexpensive interconnection, including to 12 kV or 33 kV distribution lines
  • Projects can be located close to populated load centers
