Known as concentrator photovoltaics, or CPV, the technology is featured in an installation that will be revealed Tuesday at Victor Valley College. The school's new 1-megawatt plant, on a six-acre dirt plot in Victorville, will provide around 30% of the campus' power. The $4.5-million facility will be the largest of its kind in North America.
