DENVER - Aug. 5, 2014 - PRLog -- Sulas Industries Inc. today announced that it has completed the development of a fully functional, pre-production HelioDrive HD 8, the small version of the HelioDrive solar tracker that is capable of rotating one to two solar panels using no motors, gears or electronics. Testing of the HelioDrive HD 8 in real world conditions has commenced at the company’s facilities in Silverthorne, Colorado. Development of the HelioDrive HD 50 and 75, the medium and large versions of the HelioDrive, continues.

Sulas also announced the initiation of the HD 8 Pilot Testing Program, under which a select group of potential partners and customers will be provided the opportunity to use and test the HelioDrive HD 8. Several companies have already agreed to participate in the HD 8 Pilot Testing Program, which is expected to continue into the fourth quarter of 2014.

“Each of these developments is a major step forward for Sulas,” said John Fischer, Sulas’ President and CEO. “The completion of our first HelioDrive HD 8 solar tracker provides further validation of Sulas’ unique technology, which has the capability of being used to power tracking for a wide range of solar installations. The HD 8 Pilot Testing Program will not only allow us to establish and develop relationships with potential business partners and customers, but should also provide us with meaningful feedback regarding the performance of the HelioDrive as we prepare to bring commercial versions of the HelioDrive to market.”

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 technology 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.
