Solar Thermal Hot Water System Installed at Low-Income Housing Complex

The system, installed at the Coral Wood Court Apartments, will enable low-income Reseda residents to use renewable energy and reduce energy costs while creating local green jobs. This financed system uses price-indexed energy to guarantee energy savings to the host low-income housing community, versus standard utility rates. The system is expected to save more than $175,000 over 30 years

Evacuated Solar Tube Collector

Thermal performance and Parameter Analysis of a U-pipe Evacuated Solar Tube Collector

The dependence of the thermal efficiency on meteorological conditions and important tube design parameters, including tube size, thermal characteristics (flow rate, heat loss coefficient, absorption coefficient of the selective absorbing coating), was investigated. In particular, the adaptation of collector thermal parameters to meteorological conditions was analyzed.
