|Brief Project Description||
An innovative polymer based solar water heating system preheats well water for the Stapleton-Spence fruit packing plant. The system is unique as a polymer welded system enabling low material cost, light weight polymer solar collectors that required no roof reinforcement, polymer welded piping, inherent overheat protection, freeze resistance, and fully automated control system. The system is expected to provide better than a 3.5 year payback and 25% ROI, with its $60,000 investment cost to the owner after incentives.
Inspections and incentives provided by PG&E through the California Solar Initiative - Thermal Program
