Home CSP, Inc. is dedicated to helping develop the home energy market with products for non-passive solar energy systems. We are advocates for all forms of solar energy, but particularly active solar tracking and Concentrated Solar Power. In addition to promoting solar energy in general, we specialize in embedded solutions for non-utility scale PV and CSP systems of various types and configurations. From the simplest analog tracker, to the most advanced digital tracker and PID, our products incorporate robust 8-bit microprocessors to take advantage of the latest advances in software and hardware to make "smart" solar power possible. Our goal is to deliver the type of convenience, reliability, and ease-of-use that consumers have come to expect from modern best-of-breed products.
