The focused sunlight heats up a liquid running through a series of receivers. Controlling the flow-rate of the liquid allows us to control the temperature level. The generated heat is then transferred to the end-use by directing the fluid through a standard heat exchanger.
Heliac solar fields work from the same principles as CSP (concentrated solar power) which has been proven for decades. What sets Heliac’s solution apart from CSP is the use of inexpensive, flat lenses that generate heat instead of the more costly, curved mirrors that are used in traditional CSP. This allows for producing heat at costs so low that Heliac’s panels can compete with any other method of producing heat almost anywhere in the world.
Heliacs panel are connected in series designed to deliver the needed amount of energy. There’s no maximum limit to how many panels may be connected.
