There’s a really great article on the Sun Simba HCPV up on Greentech Media. They cover the basics of what makes it such a great system, they explain the advantages of the thinness and the staggered rows, and have a great photo gallery at the end of the article. If you’re at all interested in what we’re doing over here, you should check it out.
We’ll be posting a full product page for the Simba this week as well. Exciting stuff. One image they posted that hasn’t appeared on our website yet is this one:
This shows a cross section of a Sun Simba HCPV panel set in a row, with the aluminum “H” included. The optics look a little thicker in this image than they are in reality, and this is the 1000+ suns concentration configuration with the broader triangle optic. You can also make out the tiny cell receiver assembly inlcuding visible through the optic. I think this really emphasizes the thinness and low profile of the panel.
