The Solar Technology Acceleration Center (SolarTAC) is an integrated, world-class test facility where the solar industry can research, test, validate, and demonstrate solar technologies.
SolarTAC's mission is to increase the efficiency of solar energy products and rapidly deploy them to the commercial market.
Located near Denver International Airport in Aurora, Colorado, the 74-acre SolarTAC site offers flat, graded topography and excellent insolation conditions with over 300 days of sunshine a year in one of the most progressive renewable energy states in the country.
The SolarTAC site includes facilities for testing both photovoltaic and concentrated solar power (CSP) technologies, including access to the grid.
SolarTAC is an outdoor facility and we will be touring the installations being tested by each SolarTAC member. Please allow 2.5 hours in your schedule for drive time and the tour.
This tour is approved for 1/5 GBCI CE.
The tour takes place outdoors, so wear long pants, comfortable, sturdy shoes and sunglasses. Bring a jacket, hat, etc in case of inclement weather.
