5D Watts, a custom composite manufacturing company, sent word that it has initiated formal certification testing of Hybrid Solar Concentration PV and Heat Energy System. After completion of a production prototype, and in-house testing for almost two years, the company says it is ready to complete certification testing with CERT.
“Having reached the patent pending production-ready stage, now pushes 5D Watts into the final certification process, before beginning early adopters’ installations,” says CEO Andrew Rekret. “We have customers ready in Europe, the U.S. and Canada. We also have a set of installations in the Caribbean and Costa Rica.”
5D Watts says it offers about four times total energy for home and flat roof installations.
Based on the early market response, 5D Watts plans to expand its market presence in a coordinated and strategic way, already moving aggressively into Europe.
To gain the market penetration, 5D Watts executes the following tactics:
• Set up Testing and Implementations Program for a few diversified installation sites in key markets.
• Locate more than 20 key market installations in German-speaking countries, as the first step in our planning to be able to optimize and penetrate the rest of Europe.
“We want to be able to offer the consumer a beautiful, durable Solar Energy System, that produces almost four times the output of flat PV, at the same price or less, than any existing system,” the company noted.

Have you checked out our YouTube page?
We have a ton video interviews and additional content on our YouTube page. Recently we debuted Power Forward! -- a collaboration with BayWa r.e. to discuss higher level industry topics as well as best practices / trends for running a solar business today.
Our longer running side project is The Pitch -- in which we have awkward discussions with solar manufacturers and suppliers about their new technology and ideas so that you don't have to. We've discusses everything from residential rail-less deck attaching and home solar financing to large-scale energy storage value stacking and utility-driven new home solar + storage microgrids.
We also post our Project of the Year announcements there! Interviews with this year's winners will be up starting the week of Nov. 8. Head there and subscribe today to stay on top of all this extra stuff.
