Solar Thermal Design: Research, Design and Installation of a Solar Hot Water System for Redwood National Park (2003)

Submitted by Raquel Ponte Costa on June 16, 2015

This paper details the research, design and installation of the solar thermal water-heating project at the Redwood Information Center (RIC) in Orick, California, USA in 2003. After research, they chose to focus on active, indirect solar thermal systems, rather than a passive system. An active system utilizes pumps, rather than natural heat convection currents to move thermal liquid throughout the system. This report takes you through the factors (hot water demand, solar availability) and choices they had to weigh for the system before installation.
