Solar Process Heat

Solar process heating systems can radically reduce the cost of heating water or other fluids for commercial/industrial applications.

Owners of manufacturing facilities and other businesses that require process heat know that energy costs usually go up, and rarely come down. Energy prices are volatile, fluctuating wildly as a result of market forces. Solar thermal technology can insulate businesses from volatility while generating large quantities of heat for industrial use. Solar process heat remains free, no matter how much the cost of other energy sources fluctuates.

In a solar thermal process heat system, the solar acts as a boiler or electric heater producing high numbers of BTUs at a reduced cost. The supplemental heat decreases the load on existing heating equipment, lowering maintenance costs and extending the life of the equipment.
