- Holistic Solar was founded by Zoltan Kiss, a physicist who has worked for the last 40 years in photovoltaics in the US. His company Chronar also built the first SPV factory in Harbin, China, in 1988. He founded Holistic Solar in 2016, to commercialize the most generic product of the Age of Solar 2, the REBOX.
- “Here comes the Sun.” The charter of Holistic Solar is to contribute to the clean energy revolution to the 21st century as the fossil fuel based energy industry is changing to solar based, clean energy.
Holistic Solar family of companies is coordinated by Holistic Solar Holding Corp. The holding company is registered in the US. It is the owner of all intellectual property of the family of companies. HSH also holds shares in the operating companies in proportion to the operating company’s use of the proprietary technology.
There are two OEM manufacturers, HS-SVDS in Germany develops and manufactures the equipment to produce the Holistic Solar proprietary multi-junction thin film SPV modules.
The second OEM company HS-Hu, located in Hungary, produces the HS proprietary electrolyzer and NIFEL storage device. The NIFEL contains batteries, electrolyzer and hydrogen storage.
The most important activity in the Holistic Solar family is the production of our main line of our products, the REBOX. In the diagram four such companies are identified. These are the Super Factories that manufacture the REBOX. For the moment, there are four such companies, the US, in Hungary, in Germany and in China (in the process of incorporation). The Super Factories are also called SSPV, Self-Sustaining PV industry. These are modern day “Sun-Wells”, replacement for the oil-wells of the last century.
Associated with each SSPV in the different countries, there is a franchise of MEPIS (Manufacturing, Engineering, Procurement, Installation and Service).
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’.
