How Large are SRM™ (Solar Rotational Molding) Systems?

Solar Rotational Molding Systems install into areas as small as 60′ x 60′ (3600 ft2).  However, most of this area is unmodified; it can be left as unimproved land, or even planted with low-height crops.  Here is how the land is used:

  • Heliostat array footprint @ 60′ x 10′ (600 ft2)
  • Target enclosure footprint @ 20 ‘x 8′ (160 ft2)
  • Raw materials, tools, and finished part storage (typical) 300 ft2

Total: 1060 ft2    So, just 30% of the 3600 ft2 total area is occupied by objects.  The balance of the land remains unchanged.  Compared with the concrete-slab required to support a traditional rotational molding operation, SRM offers a far less impactful solution. Large SRM systems scale as big as needed – 12 systems pack into a single acre of land.
