FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE – January 22, 2013 – Binghamton, NY – SunMaxx Solar, a leading, vertically integrated manufacturer of solar thermal systems and components, is proud to announce the installation of two solar thermal installations at the Army Reserve Center in Winder, Georgia earlier this year.
The project was conducted in conjunction with Pond & Company, who supplied the architectural and engineering services as well as McLeroy Plumbing who installed the systems. The new solar thermal heating systems will do their part to meet the Army’s goal of moving away from fossil fuels, while providing the most up to date training facility.
The first solar thermal installation included 40 TitanPowerPlus SU2 series flat plate collectors and an 806 gallon non-pressurized solar storage tank for domestic hot water. A second system was installed for the OMS building, which included a HelioMaxx 50FP Pro Kit. Each system provided 50% solar fraction and 60% solar fraction, respectively.
The Army Reserve Center is located in Winder, Georgia, which is in Barrow County, approximately 40 miles north east of Atlanta. The facility is approximately 52,000 square feet and home to almost 400 reservists.
Ed Gunn, SunMaxx Sales Manager says, “Sunmaxx offers a prepackaged kit concept to the commercial market which facilitates the entire process of sales, engineering and installation. That along with our premium, sustainable product line, it’s very attractive to Government and Military institutions.”
SunMaxx Solar will continue to develop and help procure the installation of solar thermal systems at US military bases around the world. SunMaxx has already provided solar thermal systems for Fort Hood, Moody Air Force Base and several others.
Federal mandates require that 25% of Army facility energy use comes from renewable energy sources by 2025 and Winder Army Reserve Center will help the push to stay on the list of green power partners.
As SunMaxx Solar constantly strives towards more efficient and economical solar collectors, it lives up to the company’s mission statement. SunMaxx Solar aims to build a sustainable future for our global community and is proud that the company’s installations greatly contribute to reducing our carbon footprint.
