Holistic Solar Holding SA (AG, Ltd), HSH, registered in the United States, has a number of operating interrelated companies, with majority ownership in all those companies. Holistic Solar Germany, HSG is a developer and manufacturer of thin film deposition vacuum equipment, with emphasis on manufacturing equipment to make multi-junction thin-film based SPV modules. In addition to the marketing function it also coordinates the worldwide R&D activity.
A second chain of manufacturing companies operates under the name of HS, and it produces distributed SPV power generators with storage, brand named REBOX. Presently there are three such operating companies as part of HSH, one in Hungary HS-Hu, one in the US, HS-US, and one in Germany, HS-Ge.
The most important goal is to reduce further the cost of SPV generated electricity from the present $0.10 per kWh by an additional factor of 3 to below $0.03 per kWh (in areas of insolation of 2000 hours). This cost reduction is feasible based on past research. Holistic Solar is involved in materials and device research to increase the efficiency of multi-junction thin film modules to 30%.
The energy storage associated with renewable SPV generation is a most important issue. Holistic Solar is exploiting the NiFe battery technology to provide storage for 10,000 cycles, to last as long as the SPV modules last.
Third party leasing arrangements double the cost of SPV electricity for the user. Holistic Solar offers the user/owner a line of REBOX products as the best economical and social solution for Main Street.
In the age of Solar 2, Holistic Solar wants to participate in job creation and other socio-economic benefits of the SPV industry.
Life, liberty and compassionate pursuit of happiness
We believe that the SPV industry will be a long term source of job creation, as in the 21st century the fossil fuels as an energy source will be gradually replaced by SPV energy generation. We hope and work so that the SSPV franchise can become the model of a new spirit in our lives based on a modified motto of “life, liberty and compassionate pursuit of happiness’.
