SOLARHOT Provides Equipment For Habitat For Humanity Home


SOLARHOT, a Morrisville, N.C.-headquartered manufacturer of renewable energy products, has donated a solar energy system to the Chatham Habitat for Humanity for a recently constructed home located in Pittsboro, N.C.

The solar equipment donated by SOLARHOT, valued at over $7,000, included a SolVelox drainback pump/control/heat exchanger module mounted on an 80-gallon electric water heater, a 10-gallon stainless steel drainback reservoir, four 4' by 8' collectors, mounting hardware and connection fittings.

The equipment was primarily installed by Solar Consultants, a solar energy installation company based in Carrboro, N.C., which donated over 50 worker-hours on this project.

The system will provide both water heating and space heat for the home, as well as space heat, notes Dan Gretsch, vice president of engineering of SOLARHOT.
