This manual was created and published by the Energy Trust of Oregon. It provides directions for the minimum criteria of installation under the Energy Trust of Oregon’s solar thermal water heating incentive program.
To be eligible for an incentive from the Energy Trust of Oregon, and installer must have followed these installation guidelines as at least a bare minimum. Many solar thermal technical and installation experts contributed to the creation of the document. It covers the general requirements, the needed materials, mounting, solar access, plumbing, the heat transfer fluid, and storage ranks. This installation manual would serve as a useful guide for installers interested in working in the American Pacific Northwest.
