Free Energy From the Sun ( Solar Thermal Magazine)
When you talk about solar thermal energy with people and how it can be applied to make really hot water for home or industry many people are curious about how hot it really gets and how long it takes to heat up the water. I mean how can a system that uses free energy from the sun compete with electric or natural gas that you pay for,right?
In this video, a home solar experimenter shows us in the simplest of ways, just how a small solar hot water panel works and the results you can expect for your own system. All you need is a solar collector panel ( you can make this at home and there are lots of video’s on it.), a small pump and some water.
So know that you know , what do you think about the technology now? Pretty simple right?
