Company

Solar Systems, located in Abbotsford, Australia, is a company that specializes in electricity production from concentrated photovoltaic power plants. Solar Systems developed a system that uses steel and glass, cheaper than PV. The CS500 was developed by Solar Systems, and has "112 curved reflecting mirrors mounted on a steel frame, which tracks the sun throughout the day."[2] This allows for the delivery of concentrated sunlight to the PV modules.[1]
