Solar Tracer Corporation
Solar Tracer Corporation, a Nevada corporation, is an alternative energy R&D company seeking to capitalize on the $450 Billion global alternative energy market by developing "Solar Tracer™", a low cost, high efficiency Concentrated Solar Power (CSP) collector. In terms of domestic applications, Solar Tracer™ will use concentrating solar power technology to capture energy from the sun and use it to provide hot water for homes. In terms of large, commercial applications, Solar Tracer™ will use concentrating solar power technology to capture energy from the sun and transfer it in the form of heat to run steam turbine generators which, in turn, produce electricity which is then sold to power grids. The company believes that Solar Tracer™ will exceed the performance of the current generation of linear concentrator systems. ()
