Solar Thermal (Hot Water) - The Other Type Of Solar

Just like PV solar panels, solar thermal systems are tax credit eligible on both state and federal levels. And, just as there are utility rebates for installing a new, more energy efficient water tank, most power companies also have special incentives for installing solar thermal, as high as $450 dollars per solar thermal installation!

Optimizing solar thermal performance with data loggers

By measuring and monitoring solar thermal system performance, installers can correct mistakes and fine-tune and optimize systems. As a result, US consumers are likely to regain confidence in the technology, spurring what is expected to be a burgeoning market for solar hot water heaters.

Solar Thermal 101

We've cobbled together some great factoids from the Apricus website to create this overview of Solar Thermal systems. Why are we not using this technology on every home that is exposed to the sun?

Passive Pumping for Solar Hot Water System

Sunnovations is a classic entrepreneurial story: a technically savvy consumer went to purchase a product and found what was in the market lacking and decided to build a superior solution himself. Arnoud van Houten founded the company in March 2008 and partnered with angel investors Solaq BV (who advised van Houten's previous start-up) for development and early-stage financing.

SIMPLE AND SAFE SOLAR HEATING

It is a fact that the installation and set-up of solar thermal systems is no longer the realm of rare solar enthusiasts.
