Solar Hot Water Heating


A typical household electric hot water system has two 4500 watt heating elements, which is equivalent to 100 light bulbs burning all the time. Even though the elements do not remain on at all times, the thermostat turns on and off through out each day which will loose about 2-3 degrees per hour.

Solar water heaters — also called solar domestic hot water systems — can be a cost-effective way to generate hot water for your home. They can be used in any climate, and the fuel they use — sunshine — is free.

Some additional benefits include: Qualifies for 30% tax credit, protects against future rate increases, increases property value and provides hot water during power outages.

Solar Pool Heating


Pool solar technology in South Florida has been around since the late 1970’s with an average life span of 18-20 years. The pool solar panel of choice is Helicoil and Sunstar, which have been manufactured for over 30 years by Plastic Magen (Magen eco-Energy).

You can significantly reduce swimming pool heating costs by installing a solar pool heater. They’re cost competitive with both gas and heat pump pool heaters, and they have very low annual operating costs. Actually, solar pool heating is the most cost-effective use of solar energy in many climates.

After installation, properly maintaining your system will keep it running smoothly for 10–20 years. Consult your contractor and read your owner’s manual for maintenance requirements. Your collector should require little maintenance if the pool’s chemical balance and filtering system are checked regularly.



Solar panel electricity systems, also known as solar photovoltaics (PV), capture the sun’s energy using photovoltaic cells.

Solar cells, also called photovoltaic (PV) cells by scientists, convert sunlight directly into electricity. PV gets its name from the process of converting light (photons) to electricity (voltage), which is called the PV effect. The PV effect was discovered in 1954, when scientists at Bell Telephone discovered that silicon (an element found in sand) created an electric charge when exposed to sunlight. Soon solar cells were being used to power space satellites and smaller items like calculators and watches.

Today, thousands of people power their homes and businesses with individual solar PV systems. Utility companies are also using PV technology for large power stations. Solar panels used to power homes and businesses are typically made from solar cells combined into modules that hold about 40 cells. A typical home will use about 10 to 20 solar panel.
