Solar Thermal Desalination

Solar Powered Clean Water and Desalination 

Start saving today.

This $18 billion (worldwide) market is growing at a rate of 55% annually, yet much of the industry is exclusively dependent on natural gas.  Artic Solar XCPC technology allows large desalination operations to drastically lower their expenses on natural gas and other fuel sources. *

Cleaning Water With The Power Of The Sun

Artic Solar’s ultra-high efficiency XCPC with natural gas backup provides the lowest cost of energy available today.  Our technology also offers a substantial reduction in green house gas emissions (see chart below).

 

Our advanced optics combined with a heat pump deliver a proven 49% reduction in thermal energy usage in a multi-effect distiller (MED) desalination system.*

 

Unlike standard solar systems, the XCPC collects both direct and indirect sunlight, allowing for usage across the globe. No moving parts and a dust-repellent coating mean minimal O&M costs. Our low-profile roof-mounted systems blend into any environment.

Savings & Green House Gas Reductions

Example: 100Kw System (100 XCPC’s)

 

 Natural Gas = 14,800 therms saved /yr

      174,000 lbs. of CO2 and 220 lbs. Nox

 

Electric = 300,000kWh saved per year

      410,000 of CO2 and 1,498 lbs. Nox
