Texas Has The Largest Solar Potential In The Country

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: Do you know that the sunshine that falls on Texas in a month contains more energy than all of the oil that has ever been pumped in the state can generate. Texas is the state that has the largest solar potential in the country, yet it only ranked tenth nationwide in terms of installed solar power generation capacity, enough solar energy installed to power 11,900 homes. According to U.S. Energy Information Administration Residential Energy Consumption Survey, the average annual household electricity cost in Texas is close to $2,000, one of the highest in the nation; and water heating […]

What is the best way to secure my collectors to the roof?

There are many ways that you can mount you collectors to the roof. Whether you choose a flush mount or tilt mount design you should consider using a rail system. A rail system allows you to take advantage of the rafters while not interfering with the exact location of the collectors. First, you should decide where you would like the collectors positioned and then begin by installation you roof hooks or brackets, upon which the rail will mount. Once you have secured your roof hook in place you can then install the remaining hooks. Be sure that you do not […]

How can I learn more about the financial assistance available for solar thermal

In order to educate your clients about the benefits of going solar, it is important to understand the financial opportunities. There are lots of incentives currently available for solar hot water systems. Most systems will qualify for a 30-50% incentive! Figuring out which incentives are available in your area and navigating the bureaucratic process to apply for them can be confusing. The most comprehensive resource on the internet for federal, state, and local incentive programs is the Database for State Incentives for Renewables and Efficiency (click here to go to link) (www.dsireusa.org).

Will i need to make any changes to my existing system for a Solar Thermal upgrade?

No- there are no required changes to your existing system. However, if you have a backflow preventer installed in your house then you will need an expansion tank in the dhw loop. Without this installed, the solar loop will be rasing the temperature of your existing tank and subesquently raise the pressure. Typically this pressure is absorbed by the line pressure from the municipal supply or well pressure but with a backflow preventer this cannot happen so you will need an expansion tank.

How can I simulate the performance of my solar thermal system?

Q: What is the best way to use a computer simulation model for my solar thermal system? A: There are many types of software that help determine the energy output of solar thermal systems. We use Polysun Simulation Software, professional version. With this software we can effectively design small to large hot water and heating systems with a high degree of accuracy. Contact your SunMaxx Solar representative for a Polysun analysis of your home for a solar hot water upgrade at 1-877-SUNMAXX.
