NASA pioneered the early development of concentrating photovoltaic technology. Jetstream applied some of NASA’s pioneering developments as a basis for their consumer-friendly solar energy systems. 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.
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 is to be used as the basis for a story in a future edition of NASA’s highly respected Spinoff magazine. Only 50 new technologies are selected each year to be featured in the NASA publication.
