These systems feature the Apricus evacuated tube solar collector and include all major components for residential direct flow or closed loop system configurations.


Apricus OG-300 Systems are designed to work with a variety of system formats and offer ten storage tank options from some of the top manufacturers in the industry. OG-300 System Certification allows customers to qualify for many state and utility rebate programs and ensures customers are purchasing a safe, reliable, high performance solar hot water system that is tested and approved by the SRCC's strict requirements.

The SRCC is a non-profit organization whose primary purpose is to provide authoritative performance ratings, certifications and standards for solar thermal products, with the intention of protecting and providing guidance to customers, incentive providers, government, and the industry. The OG-300 certification was developed to improve performance and reliability of solar products. Certification is based upon the determination by the SRCC that the solar thermal water heating system "successfully meets its minimum criteria for design, reliability and durability, safety, operation and servicing, installation and operation and maintenance manuals."

Kipp & Zonen - DustIQ the novel soiling monitoring solution for solar panels

Soiling of the panel glass is one of the major problems in the rapidly expanding solar energy market, with the attendant loss of efficiency and reduction in performance ratios. Now, there's a new, simple and very cost-effective alternative. Based on Kipp & Zonen's unique Optical Soiling Measurement (OSM) technology, DustIQ can be easily added to new or existing solar arrays and integrated into plant management systems. The unit is mounted to the frame of a PV panel and does not need sunlight to operate. It continuously measures the transmission loss through glass caused by soiling, so that the reduction in light reaching the solar cells can be calculated.
