Solar Hot Water Concepts

To learn about the building blocks of solar hot water systems, the applications of hot water and a system schematic:

Building Blocks of Solar Thermal
  • Solar Collectors
  • Each Solar Collector is rated by the International Energy Agency at 2 to 2.5 KW-thermal.
  • Each Solar Collector Reduces CO2 by 2000 to 3000 Kilograms per Year
  • Heat Transfer Station
  • Heat Transfer Stations Contain Pumps, Heat Exchangers, and Controls to Transfer Heat and Manage the System.
  • Scalable from 10 to 200 KW-thermal.
  • Solar Tank – Atmospheric Stainless Solar Tanks are the Preferred Long-Lasting Solar Tank
  • All SolarHot components are Made in the USA

To learn about the building blocks of solar hat water systems, the applications of hot water and a system schematic:



Solar Thermal Applications
  • Dormitories and Hotels
  • Schools
  • Hospitals
  • Cafeterias
  • Fitness Centers and Child Care Centers
  • Maintenance Facilities

Solar Collectors
SolarHot Solstice Collector

  • Designed Specifically for Hot Water Heating
  • Highly Rated By SRCC
  • Made in the USA

72 Roof Mounted SolarHot Solstice 4X10s

Month By Month Solar Contribution
Solar fraction: percentage of solar energy in the system [SFn]

Hospital Hot Water - Example
  • Example – Hospital, Mexico City
  • 30 SolarHot Solstice 4'X8' Solar Collectors Projected to Provide over 75% of Yearly Hot Water for both the Childrens and the Nursing Buildings.
  • Reduce the consumption of gas by the Hospital’s Steam Boilers by 1 Million Megajoules each Year.
  • Reduce the Production of Carbon Dioxide by the Steam Boilers by 200,000 Kilograms each Year.

The Solar Tank

Storage Tank

               Atmospheric Solar Tank

  • Costs 65% less than a pressurized storage tank
  • Customizable and built to fit any sized space
  • Made in USA

Dormitory Example

  • Black Line – Ground Water Temperature in Mexico City
  • Red Line – Atmospheric Solar Tank Temperature – shows the contribution of solar hot water over a full year
  • Green Line – Existing Hot Water Tank Temperatures – Note that The Solar Tank Can be Hotter than the Conventional Tank
