Mission

Picture From Fundy National Park, N.B.ProSolarTec strives to find an economical way of using the Sun's energy to produce a sustainable and permeant source of energy that is environmentally sound and safe for the planet.

According to the IPCC, climate change is largely due to the burning of fossil fuels by the human race. For a little over one hundred years we have been using these carbon-based fuels to produce and satisfy our energy needs and we have learned that the major byproduct of these fuels is Carbon Dioxide. This gas has a tendency to trap heat thus if there is more Carbon Dioxide within the atmosphere, more heat will be trapped from the sun's radiation.

Enter Prometheus Solar Technologies, ProSolarTec has the capability and knowhow to help eliminate the need for fossil fuels and thus eliminate human caused global warming. Because the company's Solar+ units have the capability of producing steam efficiently, energy production  can be achieved through propelling a turbine, which could replace coal burning, natural gas and other heavy fossil fuel power plants. On top of this. the Solar+ can also be used as a Solar Furnace. This eliminates the need to burn fossil fuels to in processes that require high temperatures.

Thermocouples

As the ProSolarTec continues to improve its solar concentrating technology, the technologies used to measure and record data must also follow suit. Prometheus field tests currently use data acquisition software coupled with high-grade thermocouples to accurately measure temperatures of up to 8 different locations simultaneously. The testing has recently surpassed the upper limit of K-type thermocouples and in order to record these higher temperatures the Prometheus Team is now using platinum based R-type thermocouples. As the accuracy of the tests improves, more detailed fine-tuning can be executed on the prototypes, further increasing the success of the project's experiments.
