Solar Heating Systems can produce sufficient thermal energy to provide process heat for commercial applications, space heating, domestic water heating and heat in-ground swimming pools.

Sunnycal recommends the following system applications:

-Industrial process heating: SolarBeam Tracking Collectors

-Residential hot water heating: Heliodyne Gobi Panels

-Residential radient heating: Solartron or Heliodyne

-Pool heating: SolarBeam or Heliodyne


Solar Heating System

Tracking solar thermal collectors by Solartron Energy, called SolarBeams, are now available to reduce natural gas or propane expenses. These collector systems actually track the sun’s position throughout the day, staying focused to provide the optimum heat capture performance

SolarBeam trackers produce the rough equivalent of 1/2 gallon of propane per hour, at temperatures approaching 200 degrees F. Heat production under nominal sunlight levels is approximately 34,500BTUs.

Solar thermal systems are eligible for rebates offered by the California Solar Initiative. Additionally, a 30% Federal Tax tax or Treasury Grant is available.

In mid 2011 we expect to combine solar thermal and solar electric production into a hybrid solar tracker. This unit will provide 100 percent of the energy needs for an average residential application. Watch video of SolarBeam in action.

Facilities such as hotels, hospitals and food processing are prime candidates for solar production of process heat.
