Sunnovations Achieves Solar Hot Water “Firsts”


| 6/26/2012 12:30:09 PM



Solar thermal technology innovator Sunnovations Inc. has been awarded the industry-standard OG300 certification by the Solar Rating and Certification Corporation on 41 unique system configurations for residential solar water heating. In doing so, Sunnovations has achieved several industry “firsts”, including:

The only “self-pumped” systems certified OG300 by the SRCC.

The only closed-loop glycol systems certified by the SRCC to use PEX for the solar loop piping.

The only systems with passive overheat protection.

These technical distinctions translate into a number of important homeowner benefits that are unique to Sunnovations:

1.    “Self-pumped” means that the system will work even when there is a power outage or in off-grid applications. Sunnovations’ systems are the only ones on the market that provide system freeze protection without the need for electrical pumps and controllers.

2.    “Use of PEX” means that systems can be installed more quickly and cost-effectively than any other comparable solar hot water system.

3.    “Passive overheat protection” means that the systems will not experience the chronic overheating that typical closed-loop glycol systems suffer from. This further means that the system does not require costly periodic maintenance that other systems require.



“We believe our systems represent the lowest cost per BTU delivered of any comparable residential solar water heating system in the US” stated Sunnovations Chief Executive Officer Matt Carlson, “Additionally, we have among the broadest variety of system configurations available, providing a fit for most home types and needs.”
