Company to supply mirrors to solar energy project

Guardian Industries announced that the company’s EcoGuard Solar Boost mirrors are being installed at the 370 MW Ivanpah Solar Electric Generating System (ISEGS) in California's Mojave Desert. The project is a partnership between NRG Solar, a subsidiary of NRG Energy (NYSE: NRG), Google (NYSE: GOOG) and BrightSource Energy.

Guardian started supplying the first of 160,000 of its EcoGuard Solar Boost mirrors to ISEGS in November 2011.

Thousands of software-controlled mirrors track the sun in two dimensions and reflect the sunlight to a boiler that sits atop a tower. When the concentrated sunlight strikes the boiler’s pipes, it heats the water to create superheated steam. This high-temperature steam is then piped from the boiler to a standard turbine where electricity is generated.
