Heat Pump Water Heaters as Clean-Energy Batteries

Heat pump water heaters (HPWH) are a game-changing technology that can eliminate climate and air pollution from water heating in buildings. And if that isn't enough, HPWHs have a less well-known added benefit: they can double as clean-energy batteries..

How Can Solar Water Heaters Become Standard in Residential Homes?

A solar water heater can reduce a homeowner's water heating bills by 50% to 80% on average. Though the equipment may cost more than a basic water heating system, the long-term cost savings are crucial to acknowledge.

CoolPV Hybrid Solar System

A single solar system that will collect both thermal and electrical energy utilizing the same valuable and generally scarce south-facing roof.

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.

RBI Solar - Dahlia Has You Covered

What if you could maximize the Ground Coverage Ratio (GCR) on your next project and not have to worry about the complicated variables that come with a tracker system? With a low tilt and clearance design, Dahlia® has the highest GCR of any fixed-tilt system in the marketplace. The system is available in three tilt options (7.5, 10 and 12.5 degrees) and designed to accommodate any sized PV module. The lightweight system is engineered with fewer components, several of which are shipped to job sites pre-assembled. This design feature reduces freight costs and rapidly trims the amount of on-site installation time required to complete construction. Maximizing PV coverage on a site can lead to an increase of production, which creates greater financial return for project owners. Over 100 MW of Dahlia® projects have been deployed across the United States, in regions of variable snow and wind loads. How much can Dahlia® cover and save you on your next project?
