An Array of Solar Thermal Collectors Solar thermal is the most cost effective way to generate energy!
When we think of solar power we first think of photovoltaic (PV) panels that produce electricity, we also think of expensive technology with payback periods that often exceed the lifetime of the system. Solar thermal systems are here to change what most believe about solar energy production. Many do not understand the key differences that make our solar thermal systems the most cost effective option.

Cost of System
Solar thermal systems cost less per unit of power compared to wind or photovoltaics. On average solar thermal systems are a 1/3 of the cost of solar electric systems. Solar thermal collectors produce maximum efficiencies absorbing 92% of the sun's incoming radiation with an overall system efficiency of 80%.

Maintenance
Solar Thermal is easy to understand and has very few basic components. Maintenance for solar thermal applications can often be performed by the home or business owner. If repairs are needed, the systems' simplistic nature allows diagnosis and repair to occur quickly and affordably.

Targeting the Largest Consumption
In the Southeast water heating can be responsible for up to 50% of your annual utility bills. Solar thermal collectors gather 92% of the sun's energy in its purest form, radiation. We store that energy in a thermal mass and redistribute it throughout your hot water system as needed. The energy can be used for a wide variety of applications. In a residence the energy collected can provide up to 100% of your domestic hot water needs. In addition, a solar thermal heating system can be applied to any pool or spa reducing heating cost if not eliminating them all together. Solstice Solar Systems specifically targets the largest areas of energy consumption. We pride ourselves on providing energy at 1/3 the cost of any other renewable energy technology on the market today.
"I'd put my money on the sun and solar energy. What a source of power! I just hope we don't run out of coal and oil before we have to tackle that."
- Thomas Edison (1931)
