Home » Blog » Solar Thermal at Crow Canyon Medical Center

SunWater Solar recently put the finishing touches on a large “combi” (combination) solar thermal cooling and heating system at Crow Canyon Medical Center (CCMC) in Danville, Calif. This system, the largest of its kind in California, features 75 Chromasun MCT collectors. The MCT is ideal for high-temperature solar thermal applications, such as commercial and industrial air conditioning. The CCMC project demonstrates how solar thermal technology can be applied in the healthcare industry to reduce the cost of cooling hospitals and other medical facilities.

SunWater Solar had the opportunity to showcase the CCMC system at last month’s SHC 2012 convention (International Conference on Solar Heating & Cooling for Buildings and Industry). This 3-day conference brought 220 participants from 31 countries to San Francisco, Calif. for a series of solar thermal-related lectures and workshops. As part of the conference, a group of attendees went on a walkthrough of the CCMC system that included presentations from SunWater Solar’s Justin Weil and Chromasun’s Tim Sennott.
