Solar Heat & Solar Thermal Heating Wineries

Solar Heated Wineries -The Perfect Pairing Wineries of the world from California across the globe and back to New Zealand are at the forefront of Solar heating. High electrical rates have become one of the more expensive and unpredictable costs of running a winery. Average electricity rates have been growing at an average of 10% annually since 1970. Solar hot water is extremely efficient, offers major financial incentives and blends …Read More

Solar Water and Heat for Chemical Processing

Chemical processing is an important element to many industries. From concrete to pharmacy, polymers to wastewater treatment, these industries all use chemical processes in day to day operations. Some of these reactions occur spontaneously, which means at room temperature, they will occur naturally. Other chemical reactions require coaxing in the form of heat. Solar heat for chemical processing will provide the necessary inputs, and makes use of the free fuel …Read More

Solar Heat and Solar Water for Large Applications Using SolarBeam

Solar heat and solar water in the Mediterranean is as important as the esthetics of the device. Here where the Europeans are far more passionate about alternative energy than North Americans and the rest of the world for that matter, they have evolved to consider solar panels sort of passé on two different levels. First case in point, it takes two SolarTron SolarBeams to handle the equivalent task of 35 …Read More

Solar Water Rebates in the USA

The United States have been seeing an increase in energy costs over the years, across most all sectors. Between 2000 and 2008, energy costs have almost doubled for energy used in transportation and industry. Other sectors, such as commercial and residential energy usage, have also seen increases. (Source) As well, prices have been increasing for specific forms of fuels. From March 2011 to March 2012, crude oil futures increased in …Read More

Solar Heat and Solar Water 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 in different levels around the world. Depending on a geographical location the closer to the equator the more “potential” solar energy …Read More

Solar Water for Hotels in South Africa

Hotels in South Africa could implement solar hot water to reduce their operating costs and dependencies on non-free fuel. A solar water system in South Africa, for hotels, makes use of the countries great natural solar resource. Since the sun puts forth energy every day, more than the earth currently needs, this energy could be put to use. There are no delivery charges or rate hikes associated with solar energy; …Read More

Solar Heat, Water and Versatility

The world’s energy crisis is not a problem solvable through a single magic energy technology. It will take the combined power of a variety of technologies to properly provide for humanity’s energy needs, both personal and societal. Technologies that harvest sustainable power from the planet can be combined together for a network of clean energy for the world. A major player in this potential future of interwoven energy technologies is …Read More

Solar Heat and Water for Desalination

Conditions of global water sources lead towards innovation in alternative technologies to increase the amount of potable water available on earth. For certain water poor places on earth, desalination can be an effective technique to provide drinkable clean water. The process for desalination can be achieved through a variety of means, though they are generally energy intensive. Solar heat for desalination can provide some of the energy required in these …Read More

Solar Hot Water and Beverage Processing

Industry sustainability is a concern across many sectors and countries around the world. Whether one is seeking to maintain current levels of production, or expand without negative effects on the environment, solar hot water is a legitimate avenue for a variety of industries. Beverage processing industries, whether they be water bottling plants, wineries and breweries or juice and soda manufacturers, all require heat, hot water, steam for a significant part …Read More

Solar Heat and Water: Solutions for Today

  The sun provides heat and light for the world. Plants, animals and people all rely on energy provided through solar means. Solar heat and solar water are efficient and clean ways to provide what people need in many climates across the globe. Insolation, which is defined as the energy falling on a certain area each day, varies around the world. This is the free fuel for a solar heat …Read More
