Cool Light on Hot Days: Fiber Optics Bring the Sun Indoors - Piping in sunlight without using electricity is a win-win proposition for the ecosystem and human society. Both home and business customers anticipate energy savings and a more pleasant indoor environment. (PESN July 27, 2005) (

Image:SunTracker ONE 95x95.jpg

Nature's Lighting SunTracker - The SunTracking Daylighting System produces up to nine times more light than a passive skylight and distributes light more evenly over a wider area, without worrying about heat gain. It delivers light early in the morning, late in the afternoon and all winter. Electricity costs for lighting can drop to zero during the 12 hours a day it reflects light indoors.

Image:EGIS Heliostat 95x95.jpg

EGIS - Heliostat reflects sunshine in a constant direction all day using a two-axis-rotor solar-tracker and a big mirror. This allows natural sunlight and heat to enter deep into the north side of a building, reducing energy consumption for lighting and heating.

Image:Parans Solar Lighting 95x95.jpg

Parans Solar Lighting - Sunlight is collected and concentrated by solar panels with an array of optical lenses mounted on roofs or facades. It is brought into the building through fiber optic cables and then flows out through luminaires. Exchanging half of a building’s electrical lighting for Parans Fiber Optic Solar Lighting can lower the energy costs by 20 – 25 percent.
