Everywhere Concept Machine Capture Harness



Did somebody say: "Solar..."?

What was the first thing
 that came to mind?

It depends on how old you are and where you grew up.

If you're like us, growing up on the east coast, you watched Neil Armstrong landing on the moon, Skylab, and Apollo dock with Soyuz then it's probably those shiny purple solar cells that power calculators and sidewalk lights, and so much orbiting hardware. The industry refers to these cells as "photovoltaic" or PV for short.

If you're older or grew up in more rural surroundings, it may bring those and additional recollections of warmth, light, growth, life, cleanliness. Southern exposures, barns, greenhouses, free hot water; and the need to avoid too much, shade trees, awnings, overhangs. And we all know it drives the wind and the rain. Agriculture is by far the largest "consumer" of raw solar energy.

When the realization came, it was undeniable.

Solar energy is everywhere. All we had to do was to harness it.  With a clear concept of energy flow firmly in hand, the task was to develop a machine to do the the job efficiently and reliably.  It all started with a quick calculation of value.
