Solar Hot Water in Alaska (2011)

Submitted by Raquel Ponte Costa on April 7, 2015

This presentation was written by Harvey Bowers of the Alaska Center for Appropriate Technology (ACAT). It provides information on solar thermal water heating in cold climates and uses a case study and examples from installations in Alaska to demonstrate how solar thermal can be effective in similar settings.

Solar thermal heating, as demonstrated by the residence in question, works best in climates like Alaska’s when utilizing passive design and closed loop systems, as keeping solar fraction high is challenging during the winter.
