Our Sunflower Heliostats are currently on back order. They will be available again early 2016. Thank you for your patience.

The Sunflower Heliostat is THE heliostat to get! At an affordable price, it provides reflected sunlight to parts of your home or business that are normally in shaded conditions. The addition of natural light can be directed to these shaded areas with the heliostat and without the hassle of installing solar tubes in your ceiling. An added benefit is that you can easily move or remove the Heliostat when you do not need the direct light. Now you can't to that with a solar tube!

Integrated solar panels and an automated tracking system allow the Sunflower Heliostat to do all the work. Sunlight is tracked during the course of a day to direct reflected sunlight to a desired point in your home or office. It's that simple. The Sunflower Heliostat can be used to light rooms from points outside the home or business, add sunlight under patios to bath plants with sunlight (yes, it works) and even charge solar panels that are in the shade! The efficiency isn't as high as in direct sunlight, but the Heliostat will charge solar panels in the shade.  

For those of us in the Northern Hemisphere, the optimal placement for Heliostats is on the north side of buildings (a great way to get sunlight into those spaces), and vice versa for our Southern Hemisphere friends.

Overseas orders, we can do it! Just contact us for shipping and quantities. We are here to get the world off the electric grid and onto sustainability.

All customers be sure to purchase the stand (unless you have the means to mount a Sunflower Heliostat) as they are sold separately.
