Solar water heater panels are waiting to be installed
This week, the two solar water heater panels from Heliodyne arrived. They are big but look cool and will provide us with hot water from the sun for the largest part of the year (we also have an instant backup heater for cloudy days. They will go on the roof of the main house and attach to the standing seam metal legs with S-5! clips (in order to minimize penetrations thru the roof membrane).
We changed our plans from a passive system to an active system- due to the higher efficiency and the lower cost of the latter.
