NATCAP POWER will deploy PV Solar Systems and Concentrated Solar Systems to reduce reliance on fossil fuel energy imports. All projects are considered ‘utility scale’ and are connected to the grid for distribution of electricity. NCP deploys the green energy technology for solar energy production in conjunction with the Garden Village P3 Infrastructure Development Program to provide ongoing income to the communitiesto enable self-reliance and establish energy security.
Photovoltaic(PV) Solar Systems
A photovoltaic (PV) systems are designed to supply usable solar power by means of photovoltaics. It consists of an arrangement of several components including; solar panels to absorb and convert sunlight into electricity, a solar inverter to change the electric current from DC to AC, mounting, cabling and other electrical accessories to set up a working system. Most PV systems are grid-connected, while off-grid or mini-grid systems only account for a small portion of the market. Operating silently and without any moving parts or environmental emissions, PV systems have developed from being niche market applications into a mature technology used for mainstream electricity generation. Solar tracking systems are used to improve overall performance and include an integrated battery solution.PV systems convert light directly into electricity and shouldn’t be confused with other technologies, such as concentrated solar power or solar thermal, used for heating and cooling. The systems range from small, rooftop-mounted or building-integrated systems with capacities from a few to several tens of kilowatts, to large utility-scale power stations from hundreds to thousands of megawatts. A rooftop system recoups the invested energy for its manufacturing and installation within 0.7 to 2 years and produces about 95 percent of net clean renewable energy over a 30-year service lifetime.
Concentrating Solar Power Plants
This power plant is a new generation of “power on demand” with the ability to design a unique custom power profile for each site and region. This system can instantly adapt to changes in weather and seasons, as well as, unexpected changes and needs of the power grid. Its unique design is based upon proven, technologically sound principles, perfectly suited for meeting unmet market needs for efficient, utility‐scale power. The NCP standard development project will integrate a ‘thermal energy’storage system that enables the project to produce 80,000+ MWH of power 24/7/365 day per year even when sunlight is not available. The system is fully modular, assuring flexibility in plant design capacity, siting, construction and operation. This disruptive technology optimizes power generating systems to lengthen or deliver power on demand, unlike any technology in the marketplace.
