Is Solar Molding Economically Competitive? (Are Subsidies Needed?)

Yes.  Unlike inefficient solar-electric systems, our solar thermal systems capture and use over 75% of incident solar heat.  Also, the purchase cost of our heliostats and molding systems is much less than the equipment needed for traditional gas-fired plastic molding. The result?  Lower buy-in costs AND  lower operating costs.   Solar thermal plastic molding out-competes traditional processes without subsidies – a rarity in the clean-tech world.     CapEx, OpEx, and Transport costs are all much less than traditional molding.
