Cool Earth Solar is a privately held, well-funded solar company based in Livermore, CA. The company will develop and own solar power plants utilizing our own proprietary concentrated photovoltaic (CPV) technology. We are pursuing the rapid deployment of our technology which radically reduces the material, weight and cost of concentrating photovoltaic power plants. By solving the economics of solar energy, Cool Earth Solar is driving down costs and making solar a mainstream reality. Currently in pilot production, the Company plans to reach high-volume capacity in 2008. coolearth develops and owns solar power plants utilizing our own proprietary concentrated photovoltaic (CPV) technology. coolearth has engineered a cost efficient power plant that competes economically with conventional fuels.

The company is pursuing the rapid deployment of solar technology which radically reduces the material and weight of CPV. The technology consists of an inflated concentrator and a tensegrity truss rigging structure. This material minimization approach allows production to meet the world’s growing energy demand. Since the sun offers us an abundance of energy each day to more than meet the entire earth’s energy needs, and the sun’s energy is clean and renewable, it provides our best option to avoid burning fossil fuels.
