eSolar has engineered a paradigm shift in CSP technology, providing solar energy that is cost-competitive with fossil fuels. eSolar's technology utilizes small, flat mirrors to track the sun and reflect the sun's heat to a tower-mounted receiver to create steam. This steam powers a traditional turbine and generator to produce solar electricity.
