This presentation was created by Bristol Stickney of SolarLogic. It reports on SolarLogic’s experiences with designing and installation combination solar thermal water heating systems for residential and small commercial buildings. The main technologies that the company relied on for their installations were active solar thermal hydronics and pressurized glycol because they worked well with existing technologies and offered an array of installation options. The opportunity here in a business sense is that hot water boilers are always being manufactured and installed so solar thermal has in them an existing industry to work its way into. There are many different ways to solve the piping problem for these systems, and the company found that different installations have very different piping needs.
