CUTTING-EDGE TECHNOLOGY

With a proprietary circulating thermal fluid that is no longer vulnerable to freezing or boiling, these systems provide years of maintenance-free operation at an affordable price. Evacuated tubes are tuned to absorb UV spectrum light (which penetrates clouds), operate independent of the air temperature, and are made of thick sturdy glass.

 
 

INCREASED EFFICIENCY

On a BTU basis solar thermal has a much higher output and efficiency than solar PV. Solar thermal panels also have lower wind resistance and are not as sensitive to orientation to the sun. Efficiency is a big reason why developers are choosing to invest in solar thermal.
