Solar Thermal

SunWater Solar was pleased to take part in the USGBC (U.S. Green Building Council) Silicon Valley’s program “Solar Thermal- Some Like It Hot, Some Like It Cold!” on July 12, 2011. Chris Chappell, Director of Sales at SunWater Solar, gave an overview of how solar thermal technology utilizes the sun’s energy, rather than fossil fuels, to generate low-cost, environmentally friendly thermal energy. Joining Chris in the presentation was Sargon Ishaya, President of Pragmatic Professional Engineers, who discussed solar thermal and its use in solar cooling applications. Also presenting was Nick Stimmel, Program Administrator for PG&E’s CSI-Thermal (California Solar Initiative-Thermal) Program, who discussed the CSI-T incentive structure and current program statistics. The CSI-T program is designed to encourage businesses and property owners to invest in solar thermal technology.

The audience of about 60 people took great interest in the presentations. We at SunWater Solar enjoy the opportunity to speak at such events because we believe it is vital to educate the public on the many uses and benefits of solar thermal. From solar-heated water to solar-powered cooling systems, solar thermal’s brightest days are still ahead.
