Southwest Solar Technologies Inc. announced a new collaboration structured to drive the commercialization of its innovative concentrating photovoltaic ("CPV") solar power technology. The company has signed a Joint Development Agreement with MaxQ Power Conversion LLC, an affiliate of MaxQ Technology LLC of Tempe, Arizona.

The Company’s CPV product combines advanced high efficiency multi-junction solar cells with innovative approaches in concentrator optics, power electronics, and efficient manufacturing. The design incorporates a unique solar flux management capability that enables non-uniform light intensity to be used. This makes it possible to use the CPV product with either dish or heliostat collectors designed for concentrated solar power (CSP).
