Power Generation

Generate steam to power turbines with solar energy

Artic Solar provides the greatest available fuel savings to a growing
market: the $5 billion (worldwide) electric power generation industry,
which currently relies on fossil fuels for 60% of its production.

Solar Power Magnified

ORC technology transfers heat to a fluid with a low boiling point which is then vaporized, not unlike water powering a steam turbine. The ORC (Organic Rankine Cycle) engine allows power generation at lower capacities than the usual steam turbine or fossil-fueled generator. Combined with Artic Solar’s KING it delivers low-cost, small scale, decentralized electricity generation.

Our KING collectors allow liquids to reach up to 400° F or 200° C, higher than any other roof-top system, allowing Organic Rankine Cycle (ORC) engines to operate at maximum efficiency. By using solar technology the power load is permanently removed from the electrical grid, substantially reducing green house gas emissions and expenses to the owners.

Artic Solar’s KING collects both direct and indirect sunlight (40% more sunlight than current state of the art systems), allowing usage across the globe. No moving parts and a dust-repellent coating mean minimal maintenance costs. Our low-profile roof-mounted systems blend in any environment.

Gas Reductions

Example: 100KW System (100 KING’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
