Located in San Diego, California, Envision Solar has quickly evolved into a leading infrastructure planner and architect designing corporation that deploys clean energy systems across the globe. Today, Envision Solar announced they have filed for a U.S. patent with the Patent and Trademark Office.
The patent application is for the company’s multi-axis Envision Trak solar tracking systems. Envision Trak is designed to increase energy output by approximately 20 percent over a standard fixed PV array.
The patent application describes a “Device for Continuously Reorienting a Solar Panel” which is technology invented by Envision’s CEO Robert Nobel and company President Desmond Wheatley.
When asked about this story and the state of Envision Solar, Noble was quoted as saying, “We began our development work in 2006 on this tracking technology to increase the output of our fixed Solar Tree solar canopies. Having achieved this important technology and intellectual property milestone, our team has advanced our previously patented Solar Tree® products into Envision Solar’s next generation—ultra-high output solar parking array technologies. Solar parking arrays have structural and functional requirements which are unique to this new building type including significant limiting factors of specific installation sites. However, our Envision Trak technology, a hybrid, multi-axis design, provides a highly functional solution which allows the entire Solar Tree canopy to track the sun, while not restricting traffic flow in drive aisles of parking lots.”
Currently, Envision Solar is trading in the $0.55 range. With this breaking news and an array of technology within the company pipeline, Envision Solar is a company on the move.
