SunWater Solar Inaugurates 40-Collector Thermal Installation


SunWater Solar and the Chinatown Community Development Center (CCDC) have completed a new solar water heating system at Larkin Pine Senior Housing, a San Francisco affordable-housing development.

The system's 40 Schuco Performance solar thermal collectors will meet up to 70% of the building's hot water load and offset approximately 3,700 therms of natural gas annually, according to SunWater Solar, which designed and installed the system.

The system received a $42,627 California Solar Initiative-Thermal rebate that covers a sizable portion of the system cost. The total collector area is 1,160 square feet, SunWater Solar adds.
