Solar Hot Water for Dairy Barns (2012)

Submitted by Raquel Ponte Costa on June 21, 2015

This presentation was made by Steve Dyck of Guelp Solar Mechanical Inc. It focuses on the use of solar thermal water heating for dairy barns in Canada.

The presentation starts by explaining the massive potential for the development and widespread use of solar thermal, and highlight some traditional uses such as domestic water heating and pool heating. Flat plate collectors are the best system for dairy barns, the presentation suggests, especially in conjunction with pre-cooler technology. The system highlighted in the presentation has a payback period of 6.5 years, and is cash flow positive after that time.
