Solar News

SunWater Solar, a division of Adroit Energy, often makes the news in various newspapers, magazines and other publications. We consider it vital for solar thermal companies to get the word out about successful implementations of the technology.

Only by demonstrating to business and industry that solar thermal is viable, efficient and cost-effective will the technology become as widespread and accepted in the United States as it deserves to be.
