The prototype of a new kind of
solar panel was recently unveiled by its inventor, Franklin
Thomas. The device is named, the Winter Solar Panel, and
is a Non-tracking Compound Parabolic Concentrating Solar
Designed for high
latitude cold climates, it focuses the winter suns rays, thus
increasing the panel's heat transfer efficiency.
Field trials have proven that it produces useable solar heat in
outside winter temperatures as low as -20ºC without tracking
It is designed to be
manufactured mostly of inexpensive, vacuum formed,
recycled plastics making solar heat ever more
affordable. Its Patent has been applied for, and a
Manufacturer is required.
