Sun Simba Overview
Based on our standard, mass-produced Light-guide Solar Optic (LSO), the Sun Simba is a fully engineered, modular concentrating solar panel that is easily scaled to customer needs. Standardization and modularity reduce project development costs, timelines, and expensive Balance of System (BOS) components associated with traditional PV installations.
Built using fewer, simpler materials – acrylic, glass, aluminum, and a sliver of a high efficiency PV cell – and well-established manufacturing processes, the Sun Simba will generate electricity at significantly lower costs than existing solar panels, while converting sunlight to electricity at efficiencies on par with industry leaders. Further, the Sun Simba is optimally designed to perform in high heat, high wind-load, and extreme moisture conditions, leading to less downtime and lower maintenance costs.
At this time, Morgan Solar is deploying Sun Simbas at test and demonstration in Ontario and in California. First commercial deliveries of turnkey, ground-mounted Sun Simba systems are expected in mid-2012.
