V3Solar Spin Cell = 8 Cents/kWh?

January 28th, 2013

At a minimum, it’s a neat looking design. Whether or not it will amount to anything more, who knows…

Via: Clean Technica:

“V3Solar has invented, and is now in the process of commercializing, the first major change to flat panel PV technology in over 50 years – the V3 Spin Cell. For too long, the world believed solar was flat,” V3Solar writes.

“Using specialized lensing and a rotating, conical shape, the Spin Cell can concentrate the sunlight 30X onto one sun mono PV with no heat degradation. This increases the Power Density while lowering the Total Cost of Ownership and Levelized Cost of Energy (LCOE), which is estimated to be $.08/kWh for the Spin Cell (see spreadsheet).”

    The comments at the bottom of the article rip the design to pieces. It looks like vaporware, albeit very pretty vaporware, to me.
