SunMaxx Solar Hot Water Solar System Installed at Westin Resort, St. MartenavwFm87mDz
The Westin Hotel in St. Maarten , U.S. Virgin Islands is yet another example of the match made in heaven when the hospitality industry pursues solar hot water. This 45 Collector system is not at the forefront of the hotel and government incentives were not at the forefront of the investment decision. The pure economic benefit of commercial solar hot water systems was enough to justify the project in an area where the sun is cheap and conventional energy sources are expensive. The ThermoPower system generates 43% of the energy used by the hotel’s central laundry facility. The SunMaxx Solar design is innovative, being the single largest evacuated tube drainback system in the world.
