There are a number of innovations incorporated into Jetstream’s NEWGEN® that are highly beneficial to residential and commercial consumers. The concentrating solar generating systems are a dramatic departure and improvement over traditional solar panels.
Due to its higher efficiency, NewGen® can produce up to two times the clean energy each day for approximately half the cost of traditional photovoltaic panels. Significantly less space is required than that for PV panels, lessening negative environmental and visual impact. The system is not only scalable, but also expandable for growing needs. As technological improvements are made, NewGen®’s upgradable power modules, a first in the industry, allow owners to maintain maximum system performance for many years. Systems can be assembled by the do-it-yourself consumer or professional installer. NewGen® requires no roof penetrations thereby minimizing roof maintenance and installation problems. A qualified electrician should always make the final connections to assure a safe installation. NewGen® can even be easily moved should a home or business owner choose to relocate.
Rather than lying on a roof waiting for the sun to reach a certain elevation, each NewGen® system tracks the sun from sunup to sundown each day for more daily output.
Jetstream’s NEWGEN® is powered by the Company’s proprietary “HELIOS” modules. This dual axis tracking, concentrating photovoltaic array is capable of producing 3 to 4 kilowatts of electricity for more hours daily than any non-tracking, low concentrating photovoltaic array. The system’s footprint and weight are fractions of that of traditional photovoltaic panel systems, and can be mounted on the ground or many flat roof locations with no roof penetrations required.
