Solar Hot Water / October 17 & 18, 2015
8:30  4:30 on Saturday / $65 
9:30 am  3:30 pm on Sunday
/ $65
This workshop addresses active and passive solar systems to produce hot water for a home to replace or supplement standard domestic hot water heaters (DHW). It covers flat plate systems that use antifreeze to transfer heat through a heat exchanger to the tank. These systems may be active and use pumps to circulate antifreeze and hot water or they may be passive and rely on convection/thermosyphons to move heat from the collector to the tank. Simple “bread box” water heaters where the sun directly heats a tank of water in a reflective insulated box are also covered. Two systems will be assembled to give students hands-on experience with plumbing techniques and different approaches to harvesting heat from the sun. (El Rito)
