The heliostat, solar concentrator by Perrier

Perrier station solar technology by JL article written by JL Perrier for the CEDRE in February 1981.

The JL Perrier heliotechnical station (called the Heliotrope) was created in 1971 and currently has three activity sectors: the solar concentrator, the hydrogen vehicle and the solar house.

All the work required to build this station is estimated at four million francs and required more than 8000 hours of work. No subsidy was awarded because the energy crisis manifested itself two years later and it was not until 1978 that the Solar Energy Commission was created.
