How Solar Thermal Panels Combined with Hot Water UV Tubes Work

Capturing sun light (UV-Ultra Violet) even on cloudy days, these are not electrical or gas but innovative solar thermal water heating panels. If you have a steam boiler, or use more than 300 gallons a day of hot water, you may be able to save money with our UV Solar designs.

It really is that simple.

Now, you may be asking why haven’t I heard of this before or why don’t more people use this method. Well, renewable energy is really fairly new (past 20 years) and so is just taking off. Why don’t more people use this method for hot water? Well, they probably haven’t heard of it or thought that it wouldn’t work for them.

Many businesses are just now going green. They waited until it became available on a large scale base and prices were a little less expensive. PPAs helped with the financial aspects for businesses to join the renewable energy wave.

Benefits of a Solar Thermal Water Heating System

There are several benefits of a solar thermal water heating system for commercial and industrial business. Let’s look at the benefits to businesses.

Some of those may sound a bit hard to understand like the federal investment tax credit of the solar renewable energy credits, but they aren’t hard to grasp at all. We will break them down into the simplest terms for you.

The federal investment tax credit is the United States federal government provides an excise break that allows you a 30% rebate on the total price of your solar power system. We will use small numbers as an example. Let’s say your solar thermal collector system cost $500,000.00, you will get a 30% tax credit on that cost, which is $150,000.00. 

Accelerated depreciation is where you write off the entire cost of your commercial solar thermal panel system in the first year. Normally depreciation is spread over the lifetime of the item.

Do Solar Thermal Panels Work in Cold Weather?

A good question and one that we get asked about daily. Which is why we decided to challenge ourselves and test our own SunQuest 250 Panel to see how it performs in less than ideal conditions. Note the details of the test including time, location, current weather conditions, temperature, etc. The image on the left is the actual panel in the test with parts of it covered in snow. We are supremely confident in the innovation achieved in the manufacturing of this top rated solar thermal panel. This test however blow us all away with such stunning results on a day that is typical for Indiana winters and the same for many states in the northern part of the country.

LOCATION – Indianapolis, Indiana

Date of Test – December 2022

Temperature – 19 degrees with winds at 8 mph

Conditions – Cloudy with snow flurries.

Panel Temperature –  298.4 Degrees   WOW!
