Renewable Energy of all sorts!
The trouble is this is not a heliostat.A heliostat is generally a mirror that reflects sunlight onto a stationary target. Furthermore, there are exceptions, the geometry between the sun, mirror, and the target constantly changes throughout the day.Here are some examples:Examples of "Receiver Axis" heliostat mounts.http://www.redrok.com/heliolighting.htm#receiveraxishttp://www.heliotrack.com/Vertical axis heliostat mounts.http://www.practicalsolar.comAnd examples of historic mechanical heliostats and coelostats, (2 mirror heliostats).http://www.redrok.com/main.htm#mechanicalYour tracker always aims at the sun and the geometry doesn't change throughout the day. This is a basically a conventional Fresnel lens solar tracking concentratorDon't get me wrong, I applaud your work. Please keep it up.DuaneRed Rock Energyhttp://www.redrok.com
