Powering the future through solar resources.
Due to our expertise in molten-salt technology, Pratt & Whitney Rocketdyne has granted an exclusive and worldwide license to SolarReserve for renewable-green energy with competitive pricing.
Our licensed technology with SolarReserve enables us to develop commercial-scale projects with the most efficient approach to energy management. Our operating expertise in extreme-heat flux environments such as rocket engines and the use of molten metals –– sodium and sodium/potassium-cooled nuclear reactors –– places Pratt & Whitney Rocketdyne in a category competitors haven't even ventured into yet.
