Solar collectors are essentially composed of a flat box made up of a transparent cover, an insulated back plate, and tubes containing a coolant. They work on the principle of the greenhouse effect – solar radiation that comes into contact with the surface of the collector is transmitted through it, and trapped inside the box.

Solar heating system’s basics


A solar heating system is a viable option to heating and cooling our homes. It is more important now then ever that we break our dependence on the use of fossil fuels. Harnessing the use of the sun will not only decrease the use of gas and propane, but it will also decrease our energy

Parabolic solar steam boiler


A solar steam boiler is a hot water system that uses a parabolic solar dish to collect and focus ordinary sunlight to heat water. A single large solar steam boiler can heat up to 1000 gallons of water per day. A solar steam boiler system usually also includes an automated computer tracker to follow the
