This document focuses on new solar thermal test capabilities used in the certification of solar thermal collectors. The Florida Energy Systems Consortium (FESC) created this document to help explain how their certification systems works and what the benefit will be to the solar thermal market.
This letter was written by Chip Bircher of USH2O, a solar thermal water heating industry group, to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). It answers questions that the EPA had regarding solar thermal water heating and its eligibility for the Energy Star Program.
USH2O makes the argument that solar thermal water heating should remain eligible for the Energy Star labeling program. Solar thermal sales have shown consistent growth, and so it is important to maintain the relationship as the use of solar thermal becomes more widespread.
