A more powerful Photovoltaic cell.
The Sun Simba™ leverages the latest in high-performance triple-junction (III-V) Photovoltaic cells. Our cells are made of entirely different semiconductor materials than Silicon solar cells, and accept a wider range of the solar spectrum.
Light-guiding optics - an entirely new way to concentrate sunlight.
Our patented Light-guide Solar Optic (LSO) is the first to concentrate sunlight in a planar direction, elegantly sidestepping the cost, materials, and complexity associated with CPV solar modules based on depth-of-focus lenses, mirrors, or prisms.
A high-performance CPV module the same size and thickness as standard silicon PV.
Built of an array of LSOs, the Sun Simba™ module achieves industry-leading efficiencies in the lowest cost, most lightweight and robust form to date. The result: a high-performance CPV module that is priced competitively with conventional silicon PV panels.
Sun Simba™ CPV modules are deployed on Morgan Solar’s Savanna™ tracker for a 'drop-in-place', scalable and intelligent solar energy generation system.
Better Environmental Performance.
The Sun Simba™ will be a cost-effective way to integrate renewable into the energy mix and reach sustainability targets. Sun Simba™ reaches higher efficiencies with less material inputs, improving on many metrics of conventional solar PV technology.
Higher greenhouse gas emission offsets
In moderate to high DNI locations, Sun Simba™ CPV modules will generate over 30% more electricity per kW installed than equivalent-sized Silicon or Thin Film panels, offsetting that much more conventional generation.
Sun Simba™ panels feature high recycling recovery values at the end of their 25 year expected lifespans. Almost 100% of our panel materials, which include aluminum, acrylic, glass, copper wiring, and multi-junction cells, are recyclable. Sun Simba™ panels are non-toxic, they don’t react with water, and won’t contaminate manufacturing, installation, or disposal sites in any way.
Lower site footprint.
Sun Simba™ modules are mounted on our proprietary Savanna™ tracker for a self-ballasted system that is light on the land and allows for plenty of open space.
An off-grid or diesel replacement solution
Because of their low cost, reliability, and ease of installation, small to medium Sun Simba™ installations can be deployed at remote locations that have previously not been cost effective to grid connect, enabling more efficient local power generation at a reduced budget, or displacing the need for more polluting power sources such as gas or diesel generators.
