Advanced CSP Collector Testing to take place at National Solar Thermal Test Facility

Also known as collectors, heliostats are large arrays of mirrors which collect and focus sunlight. In a concentrating solar power plant, the collectors focus sunlight on a centralized receiver. The receiver captures the heat, where it can be stored and used to produce power on demand. The unique capabilities and testing expertise of [...]
