Detailed Information:
Heliostats are mirrors that track the sun and reflect the sunlight to a central receiving point. Most heliostat solarpower systems consist of arrays of heliostats. If the mirror is inexpensive enough then they can collect solar energy at a cost that is less expensive and with higher efficiency than flat plate collectors. The arrays of heliostats concentratethe energy on a relatively small collection point that, though more expensive per square foot than flat platecollectors, are smaller and thus the total cost is lower. If used for the collection of heat the temperatures can be quite high, over 600F. If used to generate electricity the cost of the precious solar cells are only a fraction of the cost of cells in flat plate systems.
