Multi-purpose solar project design, innovation and inventions. Taking a problem and upcycling it into new, low-tech DAC (Direct-Air-Capture), harnessing and powered by our greatest source of energy; the Sun
Oversize renewable projects to power mining and adjacent community and highway energy needs.
Then, with Circular Solar, emissions reduction.
Combining circularity with the latest solar technology to enable and increase microgrid efficiency.
Reduce embodied footprint by mining, reprocessing and recycling Critical Minerals in Canada, USA & Mexico
We can test your materials for output changes and influence in use operating electrical appliances and LFP storage and propulsion batteries
Circular Solar Testing and Integration Overview
Part of Circular Solar's invention is innovating albedo effect, mitigating it so as to cool off panels to work as close as possible to their STC rated 77F.
As we see, heat waves are happening in high population, high growth regions where adding more PV plants is inevitable. How do we plan to manage this?
Thermography showing us what the naked eye cannot to better understand, plan and manage heat and cooling which impact energy production and losses.
Our 445W utility scale panel and bench.
Testing materials for ground cover or roof cover albedo values. And, how they effect electric loads, battery charging for storage and propulsion banks.

It's how we operate, as our family literally was in that business. Prior to mining, our Founder owned and ran a corrugated box design and packaging plant, at times it was family operated and as environmental advocates we were early adopters of manufacturing with large percentages of waste and recycled materials; integrating the Circular Economy.
As a triple bottom line company, Planet, Profit, People, we had to operate on lower margins to ensure sustainable packaging for supplying high recycling standard industries; glass bottle beer, wine and liquor.
In the late 80s we faced increased pressure, including from environmental groups, against the use of paper based packaging manufacturing with virgin materials, removing trees. What was their solution? Plastic packaging! Dad warned us how detrimental that would become as pollution to our planet and our health, unfortunately he was visionary and right.
Now that we have entered the Energy Transition economy, what tools will suppliers use to responsibly mine and recycle to produce these green metals, minerals and materials? We hope to have the opportunity to integrate Circular Solar as one of the many innovations necessary for meeting 2030 and 2050 targets.
