BrightSource’s proprietary Luz Power Tower (LPT) 550 energy system is built on proven power tower technology. The system uses thousands of small mirrors to reflect sunlight onto a boiler atop a tower to produce high temperature steam. The superheated steam is then piped to a conventional turbine which generates electricity. Function of the product(s): Utility scale solar power plants steam production.
This fully integrated energy system is designed to offer the highest operating efficiencies and lowest capital costs in the industry. Its low-impact design also ensures that the technology has a minimal impact on the natural environment. The result is a large-scale solar system that delivers clean reliable energy at a cost competitive with fossil fuels.; Proven record of commercial use
