Solar Thermal Community Action – Canada (2008)

Submitted by Raquel Ponte Costa on June 15, 2015

This is an action manual presented by the Canadian Solar Industries Association (CanSIA) presented in 2008. The manual follows an agenda which starts with the solar thermal basics and applications and moves on to why solar thermal energy can succeed in Canada. It mentions the best economic choices for commercial and residential solar thermal systems and includes a solar resource assessment chart. This displays a map that is color-coded for the amount of solar radiation annually in Canada. The costs section of the manual gives you an idea of what exclusive ownership, bulk purchase, and co-operative systems would cost to install by a CanSIA-certified installer. The manual ends with discussing the advantages and disadvantages of solar thermal and the future of solar thermal in Canada.`
