CSDR’s HCPV technology is the world’s best solution for high-heat and harsh conditions offering the most sustainable, highest energy yield possible. Thanks to advanced semiconductor technology that provides zero degradation and the ability to withstand temperatures greater than 150 degrees, we are able to provide the highest efficiency solar panels.
This contrasts with traditional PV technology, which is inadequate for high-heat and harsh environmental conditions resulting in considerable underperformance and constant degradation.
The Boeing Spectrolab multi-junction cells allow for the optimal conversion of sunlight to electricity.
The CSDR OPAL is a proprietary dome-shaped secondary optic with 4 quadrants providing for the most robust optical performance.
The Fresnel Kohler-designed primary optic provides unmatched light transmission with a geometric concentration of 1024 suns.
The Optical Path maintains 100% optical efficiency due to the 4 quadrants and the 4-millimeter mobility that the optical system allows.
Working directly with the world’s leading companies that specialize in the fields of multi-junction cells, optical compounds, adhesives, motor and motion companies, CSDR created a power module that combines proprietary technologies that maximize efficiency in high-heat environments. Each CSDR HCPV module aligns with 36 individual sets of receiver assemblies.
By combining 12 high-efficiency modules, the CSDR Power Frame creates a 5,280-watt high-efficiency solar panel. The CSDR power frame contributes to the long-term viability for solar farm installations with the goal of maximum efficiency.
The CSDR dual axis power tracker, featuring Siemens ultra-high accuracy controls and KMI dual-slew drive, provides flawless solar tracking. CSDR’s Power Tracker follows the sun’s movement to three thousandths of one degree providing a consistently high power output range. Keeping the CSDR Power Frame at an optimized 90-degree angle to the sun provides maximum solar power with the highest conversion rate.
In order to increase revenue at the most profitable time of day, our HCPV provides more hours of maximum production and widens energy production hours.
Traditional photovoltaic solar panels follow a bell-shaped curve in relation to energy captured in the day. It peaks mid-day and dips during surrounding hours. CSDR technology always maintains a peak with direct light, capturing maximum solar energy available, with 11 hours of peak light.
Layers of Protection

Performance Warranties and Revenue Assurances
With a 30-year performance warranty and guaranteed supply chain, our system will operate at 99.8% capacity per year for 30 years.
As added protection, each installation may be insured by New Energy Risk*. Insurance policies guarantee the system will generate 99.8% of the system’s name plate.
- Insurance provided by: EXL, Swiss RE, Munich RE, and Hannover RE
CSDR’s insurances and warranties provide coverage on all individual and collective incidents, limiting the EPC’s risk of liability.
*All proposed installations will be assessed by New Energy Risk (NER) and approval of insurance is at the sole discretion of NER on a case-by-case basis.
Ease of Installation
Less hardware, fewer man hours, easy installation.
With only 60 nuts required to attach 10 Power Frames to the tracker, it only takes one day for 4 people to install 1 MW of power.
10 power frames = 1 CSDR tracker
1 CSDR tracker = 52.8KWp
19 CSDR trackers = 1 MW
World's Smallest Footprint
An installation of CSDR’s HCPV solar technology means power, utility and solar farm projects have highly efficient land usage (approximately 1.8 acres vs. 7 acres per MW) compared to traditional photovoltaic solar technology. That’s 74% less land, making for the world’s smallest and most efficient solar energy system.
