Solar Cogeneration

Solar Cogeneration

Cogenra Solar’s hybrid technology can deliver up to five times the energy output of conventional photovoltaic systems.

By capturing up to 75% of the sun’s energy, Cogenra produces more energy per square foot than either conventional photovoltaic or thermal (hot water) systems.

The Cogenra SunPack is a compact, scalable, and self contained array that utilizes concentrating optics and single axis tracking to maximize energy capture. Sunlight concentrated to eight times normal intensity is focused on a high performance thermal-electric stack. This provides electricity, which is fed into the building distribution system, and hot water which transfers heat energy to either a boiler or domestic hot water loop where it can be used for:

  • Boiler pre-heating
  • Cooking and food preparation
  • Laundry
  • Showers
  • Cleaning

Benefits of Cogenra system include:

  • Suitable for structures with limited roof space
  • Reduces ongoing operating expenses
  • Quick return on investment
  • Hedges against rising energy costs – electricity, gas, propane
  • 25 year expected lifetime
