It takes only 2 days to from the time of excavation to the complete installation and calibration of one SolarBeam. The Solar Concentrator is installed facing South and needs to be installed 6 meters (20 feet) away from any obstacles, such as trees or buildings. The installation is a 4 step process.
- Step 1: Dig trench & install heat-transfer pipe
- Step 2: Assemble SolarBeam kit
- Step 3: Connect heat exchanger and pump station to heating system
