How to Save Money with Solar Hot Water

The SolarBeam Parabolic Concentrator is a solar hot water system that provides up to 12kWh of solar hot water. Since the system tracks the sun, it is more efficient than flat panels. The SolarBeam can be used in any application that requires solar hot water or solar heat. Solar Hot Water in Vancouver? There are two primary ways to use the sun’s rays to create energy: solar photovoltaic systems create electricity; …Read More

Solar Heat for Wineries and Breweries

Wineries and breweries can reduce operating costs by using solar heat for heating water up to 250 C. There are many uses for solar heat and it is cheaper than installing PV panels to provide the electricity for heating water. Many people are familiar with flat panels, but due to the inefficiencies, they cannot provide steam like the SolarBeam. The SolarBeam is a parabolic dish that tracks the sun and …Read More

Solar Water Applications in Spain

The amount of solar energy reaching the surface of the planet is so vast that in one year it is about twice as much as will ever be obtained from all of the Earth’s non-renewable resources of coal, oil, natural gas, and mined uranium combined. Solar energy can be harnessed to provide solar water and solar heat. Depending on a geographical location the closer to the equator the more “potential” solar …Read More

Solar Hot Water Use in Prison Applications

Solar hot water is an important step to reduce energy usage for companies. There are many uses for solar hot water and it is cheaper than installing PV panels. Many people are familiar with flat panels, but due to the inefficiencies, they cannot heat a large home or company. Finally there is a solar hot water system that can provide: space heating, solar water and space cooling. The SolarBeam can …Read More

Solar Hot Water for Fitness Centers

Solar hot water is an important step to reduce energy usage for homes and companies. Imagine not having to pay your oil or power bill because you can get free heat from the sun. Many people are familiar with flat panels, but due to the inefficiencies, they cannot heat a large home or company. The SolarBeam can replace 10-15 large flat panels because it tracks the sun and can create …Read More

SOLAR HEATING USING SOLARBEAM WILL SAVE YOU MONEY

Thank you for considering the Solar Heating of the Future: Solar Beam Concentrator Example of a purchase of a solar heating system: You’re “Pre-buying” your solar heating fuel for 5 to 6 years (then your SolarBeam) is now paid for, – after that you should go on to enjoy 20/30 years of energy free/emission free heating returns. Fact and findings of heating systems: In our climate, radiant floor heating systems …Read More

Qualities of an Effective Solar Hot Water System

Solar hot water systems exist in many variations and styles. At the core of all these systems, there are distinct similarities. The obvious one, is that they all are designed to transform the radiant energy of the sun, beaming down across the earth each day, into usable heat energy. The heat energy can be used for many purposes; domestic hot water for cleaning, bathing and cooking, space heating or in-floor …Read More

Solar Thermal Systems and Energy Storage

  To provide more versatility for a solar thermal energy system, thermal storage can be used to holdover the heat supply for when it is required. While a large amount of heat can be produced from solar power during the day, a large demand for this solar thermal energy is at night. The thermal storage system makes use of the physical and chemical properties of various substances to provide a …Read More

Solar Hot Water Applications and Types of Solar Collectors

In large applications of solar hot water, there are 3 types of collectors; concentrating collectors, flat panels and evacuated tubes. This article will discuss the pros and cons of each type of collector when used in large solar hot water and solar heating applications Concentrating collectors in Solar Heating ApplicationsConcentrating solar collectors use reflectors either as a trough to focus on a line absorber or a dish to focus on …Read More

Solar Hot Water Systems and the European Union

The European Union and its Member States have committed themselves to achieving a 20% share of renewable energy in Europe’s final energy consumption by 2020. To reach this target, the renewable heating sector will have to make a significant contribution since the demand for solar hot water heating and cooling represents 49% of the total energy demand in Europe. The SolarBeam Concentrator can be used for solar hot water heating …Read More
