A California company is bringing its new solar technology to the Big Island.  SolFocus will test its Concentrator Photovoltaics in Hawaii at the Natural Energy Laboratory of Hawaii.  The company said it will test future generations of CPV to see if it is suitable for Hawaii.  It is the first time CPV technology will be commercially available in the state.  The company said its technology uses a system of nonimaging optics that magnify sunlight 500 times onto small solar cells.  The solar panels are made of aluminum and glass.  SolFocus is based in Mountain View, California.  More information coming soon.
