VALLEY FALLS, N.Y. (AP) — A solar installation that produces industrial steam by concentrating the sun’s heat is being unveiled at an upstate New York dairy farm.

The New York State Energy Research and Development Authority is introducing Skyven Technologies’ Intelligent Mirror Array Tuesday morning in Valley Falls, north of Troy.

Dallas-based Skyven was the $1 million grand prize winner of the state’s 76West Clean Energy Competition in 2017. The company used Cameron Manufacturing in Chemung County to build the mirrors.

The Skyven mirror array is designed to cut greenhouse gases by using solar energy for industrial boilers. The company says the solar arrays can substantially cut fuel costs.

Skyven recently signed an agreement to install its rooftop Intelligent Mirror Array at a dairy co-op plant in Visalia, California.
