Solar thermal systems capture sunlight to heat water. While this technology has existed for decades, recent innovations have significantly improved both performance and aesthetics.
Solar thermal is universally applicable as a means to reduce energy costs and environmental impact. The technology is particularly applicable to buildings that:
- Use a large amount of hot water
- Receive abundant sun year-round
- Are located in areas with favorable incentives
Additionally, solar thermal may be used for LEED credits.
Multi-unit housing, hospitality, industrial, healthcare, and food service properties are typically well-suited for solar thermal.
Cost savings accrue immediately, and government and utility incentives shorten the financial payback – to less than five years in many markets. Solar thermal systems last for decades with minimal maintenance costs.
