About eSolar

eSolar designs and develops Concentrating Solar Power (CSP) projects that start at 46MW and are scalable to any size. The company's power plant technology utilizes small, flat mirrors which track the sun with high precision and reflect the sun's heat to a tower-mounted receiver, which boils water to create steam. This steam powers a traditional turbine and generator to produce electricity.
