About CEWA

Innovative Solar Thermal Technology

IMAGINE

Imagine a solar power (CSP) concentrator capable of delivering 30 kW of thermal power, 10 kW of electricity or a combination of the two at a price competitive with fossil fuels – even without government subsidies.

BELIEVE

CEWA concentrating solar power technology is uniquely suited for self-sufficient power, heating, cooling and HVAC applications at commercial, institutional, industrial and agricultural sites.

DISTRIBUTE

With commercial demonstration projects in place and a growing network of distributors and manufacturers, CEWA is a recognized leader in the field of affordable, attainable solar power.

Our Story

Inexpensive, plentiful energy is the foundation of all modern economies. But as fossil fuel prices continue to fluctuate, growth is threatened. Concentrating solar power – inexhaustible, sustainable, accessible – is part of the solution. And CEWA Technologies is the company to make affordable, reliable CSP a reality.
