New Solar Thermal Energy System

SHEC Mirror and Reciever Unlike conventional solar thermal systems that use long parabolic troughs to focus solar energy on a tube filled with oil or salt, the SHEC Energy Stystem manufactures its own individual parabolic mirrors 30 times faster than industry standards and uses each one to focus the sunlight on an individual ‘solar reciever’ that collects temperatures of 1,532ºF, (1.5 to 2.8 times conventional solar thermal temperatures). This heat is moved to a boiler or to storage though a newly developed pumps, actuators and articulating joints that can withstand 850°C temperatures. The transport uses SHECTHERM, a proprietary non toxic solution capable of withstanding high temperatures, which makes it more efficient than the oil or molten salt based solutions currently in use. If not used to boil water for turbine electricity generation, the system stores the energy with SHECSTORE a proprietary NON TOXIC medium that stores the thermal energy in large or small underground tanks to run turbines or, on a smaller scale, a stirling engine power generator for 24 hour power!
