SolarUS commercial and residential solar thermal systems

If you would like to  save money and go green, consider installing a SolarUS solar thermal system to provide hot water and heat to your home or business  for unlimited, clean and FREE energy from the sun. Five times more efficient than traditional photovoltaic cells, just one collector converts enough solar energy to provide a family of four with enough hot water for showering, dish washing, laundry and other general home use.

Our goal is to save money and the environment. A great way to do this is to install a SolarUS solar thermal system in your home or business. The main component of the SolarUS system is our top of the line solar thermal collector which is five times more efficient than photovoltaic cells. The system uses state-of-the-art evacuated tubes that harness the insulating power of a vacuum to absorb and retain over 98% of the sun’s radiation that comes in contact with the collector.

Guaranteed for fifteen years (the longest warranty on the market) SolarUS tubes are made from high quality borosilicate glass and are fused together. This provides an all glass seal. Some manufacturers use a metal plug to provide the seal which can result in the decreased life of the tube, due to a difference in expansion and contraction rates. The SolarUS tube uses a unique three layer selective coating instead of the standard single al-n/al coating. It consists of an infrared emission layer, an absorption layer and an anti-reflective layer, giving a much improved performance.

 

Currently, there is a 30% Federal Tax credit available and in many states, there are additional tax incentives as well as a special accelerated bonus depreciation for commercial projects.

 

The United States has a great opportunity to transform our economy from one running on fossil fuels to one based on clean energy beginning with offering solar power into our mainstream society. Below is a list of information on tax credits, loans, state incentives, utility rebates and other assistance available to offset the cost of your project.
