Practical Solar is dedicated to introducing solar energy products that are truly practical. We currently design and manufacture concentrating solar power (CSP) systems for commercial HVAC.


Installed on the flat roof of a commercial building, Practical Solar heliostats are designed to supply all of the building's heating and cooling needs. For a number of reasons, solar panels and solar hot water systems are not suited for this task. Practical Solar heliostats collect and process solar energy in a different way, allowing them to do the job of heating and cooling commercial buildings 365 days a year without fossil fuels. The system is designed to pay for itself in two to six years. Please explore the Technology page to learn more about how the system works.
