The Solar Booster™ is a method and apparatus for desalinization. A heating grid containing a fluid is used to heat the fluid to a vaporized state using energy provided by compound magnifying lens focusing solar energy directly onto the grid, and the vapor from the grid system is transmitted to a steam turbine, where electricity is generated to charge a battery.
The vapor from the steam turbine is conducted to a condenser, the vapor is cooled, and fresh water is provided from the condensate. The remaining fluid from the condenser is pumped back into a reservoir for storage while waiting to be conducted into the heating grid. The magnifying lens and grid rotate for alignment with the sun.

The Solar Booster™ a desalinization system where a heating grid containing a fluid, e.g., salt water, contaminated water or the like, is used to heat the internal fluid to a vaporized state using energy provided by two large compound magnifying lenses, focusing concentrated sunlight energy directly onto the grid wherein the vapor from the grid system is transmitted to a steam turbine. Electricity is generated to charge a battery, while the vapor from the steam turbine is conducted to a condenser, the vapor is cooled, and clean fresh water is provided from the condensate. The remaining fluid, e.g., salt water, from the condenser is pumped back into a reservoir for storage while waiting to be conducted into the steam heating grid made of glass or metal, about two inch in diameter and about 1/4 inch thick. A source of suitable fluid is sent to the pump for pumping necessary supply fluid into the storage reservoir. The entire generating system is mounted on an effectively sized platform which rotates in a 360-degree path, which allows the magnifying lens to constantly receive maximum energy from the sun, as the sun changes angle during the day or as the sun goes down. The rotating platform is driven by a motor, which receives energy from the battery.
The Solar Booster™ provides a fresh water supply from a salt water source of water. It utilizes solar energy in order to heat the salt water to a vaporized or steam state. The platform rotates so as to always maintain the highest possible efficiency while receiving solar energy from the sun.
The Solar Booster™ provides a means for generating electricity, which can be used to charge a battery, which can likewise be used to furnish electricity to the pump used in the system and to likewise furnish electricity to a motor which turns the platform upon which the system is mounted.
It creates electricity to light and power a house for up to 48 hours, is easily operated by a user, and can be manufactured relatively inexpensively.
