Solar Boiler Electrical Generator and Heat Machine

70% of the average household's energy bill is spent on heating and hot water. By focusing sunlight on a linear boiler (with a parabolic trough or linear fresnel reflector), making steam and putting that through an efficient steam turbine connected to a permanent magnet alternator, and a condensing thermal storage tank it is possible to make heat, hot water and electricity at higher efficiencies and lower cost than using photovoltaics. Additionally, this design utilizes an analog tracking system that requires no electricity, uses solar energy to create movement and operates on fluid logic. In the next iteration steam jet ejectors will drive a chiller for cooling operations.
