This is a quick appliance concept that would integrate with heliostats very nicely. This setup would look like normal kitchen appliances, but would use direct CSP instead of AC electricity.
Notice that the cost of the solar optical components should be low and therefore not increase prices substantially over existing models.
Ideally this would be installed on a North facing wall (for Northern Hemisphere locations) for best exposure to heliostats throughout the day.
