SolFocus is a leading supplier of Concentrator Photovoltaic (CPV) systems. Featuring a reflective optical system to concentrate sunlight at 650 times onto very small high-efficiency multi-junction PV cells, the company's high efficiency and high performance systems provide the lowest levelized cost of energy (LCOE) in high sun regions. These CPV systems are certified to IEC 62108 industry standard, and have been designed for high reliability in extreme operating environments with very low maintenance requirements. Due to the incorporation of primarily glass and aluminum, a robust passive thermal management system, and a dependable dual-axis tracking system, SolFocus CPV systems have been field-proven to deliver energy at projected levels. SolFocus CPV panels come with a power performance warranty that is backed by Munich Re. With the lightest environmental footprint of any solar technology, SolFocus CPV meets the need not just for clean energy, but a superior cradle-to-cradle footprint.

The SolFocus mission is to enable solar energy generation at a Levelized Cost of Energy (LCOE) competitive with traditional fossil fuel sources. To achieve this goal, SolFocus has developed leading concentrator photovoltaic (CPV) technology which combines high-efficiency solar cells (approaching 40%) and advanced optics to provide solar energy solutions which are scalable, dependable and capable of delivering on the promise of clean, low-cost, renewable energy. SolFocus is headquartered in San Jose, California with regional sales operations in Madrid, Spain.
