ADI Solar Power Plants

ADI Solar Power Plants

ADI Solar Power Plants are designed with Governments, Business and Residential Development Builders in mind featuring the added benefit of potential leasing income from clients who are on your Solar Power Plant distribution system. Also we are working with Solar Panel companies to integrate their panels into our Solar Plants for even more power availability.

Stay tuned for updates.

Solar Plants

June 28, 2021


  1. Alternative Designs Inc., (ADI) Integrating Sustainable Technology to Solve Tomorrow’s

    Energy Needs Today! Wayne Bliesner Founder and CEO
  2. Cheap continuous renewable power is now possible! With ADI. See

  3. Roadmap The Problem ADI People ADI Technologies ADI Solutions How

    Do We Get There?
  4. No cheap, continuous renewable power. Why? Intermittency Clouds block the

    sun; then it sets. Winds are variable. Intermittency limits renewable power input to 10 % of grid capacity before the grid becomes unstable. The Problems
  5. The Problem Batteries or other storage are needed for off-peak

    production. No commercially available power storage system delivers sufficient power to offset intermittency. Strategic materials such as Lithium are too rare to scale to Terawatt levels. The Problems
  6. ADI People Wayne Bliesner ADI Founder and CEO 20 years

    in Aerodynamics engineering research at Boeing. Headed $100 Million NASA research program. 7 patents for airplane systems. Invented wing configuration worth $50 million for Boeing. 20 years as an independent research scientist, inventor. Stirling engines, Solar energy storage, Solar Fuels High efficiency LED lighting systems.
  7. ADI People Gerald Fargo COO 15 years as an engineer,

    project manager, product manager. Boeing, Ford, Dynacs Consulting. Expertise in fluid dynamic, structural mechanics, automotive acoustics, solar optics, pomputational methods, CAD software development. 15 years as an independent research scientist. Designed and patented the ADI Side-Focusing Heliostat.
  8. ADI Associates Dr. Sergio Calqueiro High-Tech-Concepts Marketing GmbH, presenter, consultant.

    Dr. Robert Bowman, Jet Propulsion Laboratory (ret.) Hydride expert, consultant. Dr. Robert Reed, Los Alamos National Laboratory Heat transfer consultant, heat pipe designer. Dr. Allan Organ, Cambridge University (ret.) Stirling engine design consultant.
  9. ADI Technologies Patented, tested Dual Shell Stirling Engine. Delivers 25

    kilowatts. Highest efficiency, minimal power cost. Fueled with natural gas, biomass, or solar. 10th generation Beta engine operational. Beta prime design improvements: Dual shell heat exchangers. Rhombic drive.
  10. 25kW and 100 kW Dual Shell Configurations Engines gang together

    on common driveshaft. 25 kW becomes 100 kW. 100 kW Systems and 10 MW Systems are available. ADI Technologies
  11. ADI Technologies Patented Solar Collection Dish Improved solar collection efficiency.

    Smallest solar power land footprint. Competitive cost of energy. Environmentally sustainable. Continuously available power.
  12. ADI Technologies Patented, tested Calcium Hydride energy storage Stores excess

    power for delivery after sunset. Solves renewables “intermittency problem”. Environmentally sustainable. Competitive power cost. Scalable - no rare materials.
