PAYBACK / RETURN ON INVESTMENT
One SolarBeam Concentrator can produce peak 10 kW/hour or 34,140BTUs of heat each hour. If you were to factor an average year of 8 hours of sun per day, you would achieve 80 kW or 273,120 BTUs in a day. Compared to existing solar hot water systems such as evacuated tube or standard solar flat panel systems, theses systems have a payback of 15 – 20 years for compared to the SolarBeam Concentrator of 6 years.
The SolarBeam becomes a winner since you would need double the amount of solar hot water panels to match the Solar Beam Concentrator because of the low efficiency of the panel due to the static position and lower efficiency.
It is very easy to see the instant savings for the SolarBeam solar concentrator system. No other system in the world is as efficient and provides immediate savings as the SolarBeam. Solar hot water heating now can be used for home heating and for manufacturing facilities.
