About Sulas Industries
Sulas Industries Inc. has developed a groundbreaking approach to solar tracking that uses no motors, gears or electronics. Sulas’ patented HelioDrive technology uses the power of the sun, through simple optics acting on a small amount of phase change material, to generate the energy to rotate a collection of solar panels, allowing them to reliably and economically track the sun and enhance their energy yield.
The HelioDrive is highly scalable and has the potential to be cost-effectively applied to projects ranging from a single solar panel to large-scale utility level solar projects.By removing the cost and reliability barriers that have traditionally inhibited the use of solar tracking, and by significantly reducing upfront, operating and maintenance costs, the Sulas HelioDrive aspires to become the industry standard for dependable, cost-effective solar tracking.
