I don't have  a solar lens, but our warm water collector does make a large part of our heating and warm water. (but we only installed one panel, although there is room for two.)
Efficient enough without a lens.

But since a large solar lens can generate much more heat in a specific point, it generates a larger temperature gradient which makes the water move much faster, which will be better for generating electricity I guess.
