Brazil: 2,300 Solar Water Heaters Mounted on Metal Poles

Submitted by Baerbel Epp on November 5, 2013

Brazilian system supplier Sol Tecnologia has installed the first 80 pole-mounted solar water heaters since the beginning of October. COPEL, the local utility of the state of Paraná, commissioned altogether 2,300 solar water heaters to be installed in low-income houses across the state, in order to fulfil its energy efficiency quota. Brazilian utilities are required to invest 0.5% of their net turnover in energy-efficiency measures. Sol Tecnologia, which uses products from Brazilian collector and tank manufacturer Soletrol, has 200 days to complete the 2,300 systems.
