BrightPhase Energy was founded in 2000 by Scott Frazier, and is headquartered in Denver, Colorado . Brightphase Energy utilizes the Photensity system, a system designed to make buildings use energy more efficiently. It is specifically designed for single-story commercial buildings that use electricity, heat, hot water, and lighting .
The Photensity system achieves high-density energy production for commercial buildings, as well as cost-effective solutions, by combining solar electric, solar thermal, and daylight energy production into one module. The Photensity system uses a slat/louver design to concentrate the sun on a single axis and onto a single row of solar cells on the back of each slat to create electricity and heat. The slats are cooled by a cooling tube to maintain the highest level of function without overheating .
