A SAEP is made of three components:
- A large (usually circular) solar collector with a transparent roof supported a few meters above the ground (The Greenhouse)
- A tall, warm air up drafting, Cylinder on the center of this Greenhouse (The Floating Solar Chimney)
- A set of Air Turbines geared to appropriate Electric Generators around the base of the Solar Chimney (The Turbo Generators).
