NASA pioneered the early development of concentrating photovoltaic technology. Following the introduction of NewGen, the first residential concentrating solar generating system, Jetstream was contacted by NASA to learn more about NewGen and the company. Jetstream applied some of NASA’s pioneering developments as a basis for their consumer-friendly solar energy systems.
NASA visited Jetstream at the 2017 Consumer Electronics Show, beginning an extensive interview with Henry Herman, Jetstream’s CEO, focusing on NewGen and its innovative technology. The interview will be used as the basis for a story in the next edition of NASA’s highly respected Spinoff magazine. Only 50 new technologies are selected each year to be featured in the NASA publication.
