Rep. Rosa DeLauro, D-Conn., recently toured the facilities of Apricus Inc., a designer and manufacturer of solar hot water and hydronic heating products, as well as the facilities of Apricus partner Engineering Specialties Inc. (ESI), a manufacturer of engineered metal stamping, mechanical assemblies, and other custom component parts.

DeLauro toured both the Apricus and ESI factories to learn more about their collaboration and efforts to produce a solar thermal product locally. The two Connecticut-based companies partnered in early 2011 on the AP-30C, an evacuated tube solar collector that Apricus says exceeds the requirements of the Buy American Act and is suitable for projects funded by the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act.Â
