LVI Energy

Solar Thermal

Solar Thermal: The sun is the single largest source of energy known today.

In order to make renewable energy from the sun more widely used the US federal government provides a 30% investment tax credit (ITC) for the installation of a solar system in a home or business. Additionally all states in the union offer similar tax rebate incentives, rebates and grants that can be taken in combination with the federal ITC.

Solar Thermal Commercial Systems

Typical commercial applications are Hotels, Apartment Buildings, Restaurants, Carwash, Small Laundries, Breweries, in short, any business using a lot of hot water.

Example of a typical Solar Thermal Commercial System would be: Apartment Building, 52 units with 52 collector hot water system projects to save $6,200.00 in conventional fuel cost per year.

Solar Thermal Industrial Systems

This particular Solar Thermal Industrial System features a 20,000 liter (5,300 gal) system with 120 KIOTO FP 1.20.0 HE sc collectors and two 10,000 liter (2,650 gal) stainless steel insulated tanks.

The system has a working pressure of 57 PSI and its life expectancy is 20 years plus with an efficiency rating of 80% and a reduction of conventional fuel consumption of up to 90%.

This is a typical system which can be tailored to meet many different needs of large hot water consumers, such as, textile industries, food processors, laundries and hospitals, just to name a few.

Solar Fact

FACT: The sun comprises 99.8% of the mass in our solar system. In only 1 day, the sun produces 10,000 times the amount of energy to power the entire world.

FACT: An average sized domestic solar hot water system can offset the Carbon Dioxide (C0²) emissions equivalent of one typical motor vehicle. That’s about 1.5-2.9 tons per year.

FACT: When using the sun’s energy no carbon dioxide, methane or other emissions are produced that are responsible for the effect of GHG (green house gases) causing global warming.
