Industrial heliostat can provide low-cost heat and light

Heliostats are sun-tracking mirrors that can provide low-cost heat and light for buildings and industrial processes. The H1 Heliostat provides over 2,000 W of heat and light energy to a target, and multiple H1s can be combined in arrays. The H1 features a tensioned-film reflector, rather than a glass mirror, making the unit lighter weight and safer with better reflective properties than glass. The H1’s reflective surface is made from tough metalized plastic stretched onto a frame made from aircraft-grade aluminum. The H1 also features a wireless control system that allows users to configure and aim heliostats with an easy-to-use computer program. Possible applications include steam generation, drying food in agricultural operations, warming greenhouses, enhancing oil extraction, melting ice and others. — LightManufacturing LLC, Pismo Beach, Calif.
