Our collectors can be integrated with your existing hot water system to accommodate 80% – 90% of your hot water requirements. In addition to domestic hot water systems, our collectors may also be used in radiant floors and base board heating systems.

Flat Plate Solar Collectors are extremely affordable, costing only a few hundred dollars each.

In the sunny middle of the country, one Sq Ft of our Solar Evacuated Tube Panels will produce an average 290,000 Btu’s per year at an initial panel cost of $38 per Sq Ft. On a bright winter day they will produce an average of 1,400 Btu’s per Sq Ft per day.


In the sunny middle of the country, one Sq Ft of our Solar Flat Panels will produce an average of 294,000 Btu’s per year at an initial panel cost of $32 per Sq Ft.  On a bright Fall or Spring day they will produce  1,418  Btu’s per Sq Ft per day. If you are in an area where near or below freezing temps are normal for the heating months, then  Solar Flat Panels will not produce enough energy to match the Evacuated tubes. Solar Evacuated Tubes would be the proper and efficient Solar Panels for that climate.


Flat Panels are more efficient in warmer climates than Evacuated Tube Panels, as Flat Panels are affected by outside air temp and cold wind. Evacuated Tube Panels are more efficient in warm to sub-freezing climates, as they are not affected by outside air temperature or cold wind,  and absorb available sunlight from 360 degrees.
