SunMaxx Solar announced today the company will soon be starting a large solar thermal system installation in the United States at the Fort Hood military base in Texas. Located approximately 60 miles from the state capital of Austin, Fort Hood covers a total of 340-square miles and supports multiple units, a corps headquarters and a robust mobilization mission.
The installation is tentatively scheduled to be completed by early spring 2011, and will include six solar thermal hot water heating systems to meet the domestic hot water needs of six different buildings on the base.

The system will be installed by Intelligent Green Solutions (IGS), an authorized SunMaxx solar thermal installer located in Ithaca, New York.
