SAN JOSE, Calif. – Sept. 7, 2010 – Industrial rooftop solar solutions company Chromasun today announced that it has partnered with SunWater Solar, a solar thermal technology integrator, to deploy California’s first Micro-Concentrator (MCT) solar cooling demonstration at Santa Clara University’s (SCU) 2007 Solar Decathlon House. 

The lightweight, low-profile MCT module is a utility-scale solar collector packaged for rooftop deployment. The technology is designed to offset summertime peak loads by utilizing solar energy for commercial and industrial cooling needs.  A demonstration system was recently installed and commissioned at SCU as part of the school’s solar-powered house, which won third place at the U.S. Department of Energy’s 2007 Solar Decathlon. In this demonstration, Chromasun’s MCT is providing clean renewable thermal energy for air conditioning, space heating and hot water.
