eSolar designs and develops Concentrating Solar Power (CSP) projects that start at 46 MW and are scalable to any size.

eSolar 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 solar electricity.

The simple concept of making renewable energy cost-competitive with fossil fuel energy has driven eSolar to engineer a paradigm shift in CSP technology, providing a cost-effective and scalable solution. eSolar partners with leading energy companies around the world to enable complete project capabilities, ranging from technology development and component manufacturing to power plant construction and operation.
