Crystal Green Energy Corporation is an emerging green technology company currently developing Combined Heat and Power (CHP) panels (which they call Solar Optic Modules) for residential and commercial applications. Their patent-pending Luminosity Lens concentrates the sun’s rays on an extremely compact (1×1.1sq.m) panel, delivering over 600W CHP per panel. Compared to a traditional solar panel operating at around 15% efficiency, the SOM boasts a remarkable efficiency close to 40%.
A byproduct of this revolutionary design is a substantial amount of thermal heat. That heat could be used to decrease your domestic hot water or heating system costs.
The Sudbury, Ontario-based company is hoping to have SOMs available on the market by early next year. While the technology has potential commercial and industrial applications, the company expects the first users to be residential customers and small business owners.
