Project Overview

SunMaxx Solar in conjunction with Eastern Energy Solutions, installed a Solar Hot Water System at the Broome County YMCA in Binghamton , New York which included 10 SunMaxx ThermoPower-VHP30 evacuated tube collectors , 300 tubes and Evacuated Tubes as part of a solar thermal system designed to supplement the domestic hot water heating costs of the facility, allowing additional budget money to be used for service and facility upgrades.

The system is large enough to provide 140 million BTUs of heat energy annually – enough to heat 218,000 gallons of water each year. The solar hot water heating system will offset enough natural gas to provide more than 29,000 showers each year (83 a day). The SunMaxx solar hot water system will have a dramatic impact on reducing the natural gas usage of the YMCA facility, and is only a part of more than $1,000,000 that the YMCA has invested in energy efficiency upgrades, including efficient lighting and heating/cooling system upgrades.
