Rooftop Solar Water Heating System, Riverside Correctional Facility, Philadelphia Prison System (2008)

This document details the construction of a solar thermal water heating system on the Riverside Correctional Facility in Philadelphia, PA.

The installation is a rooftop boiler setup. The cost of the system was $665,000; and it is estimated that over the 25 year life span of the equipment there will be an avoidance of 1 million pounds of carbon emissions that would have otherwise occurred. The project should fully pay for itself back due to energy cost savings in a decade.
