Solar Thermal Storage Demonstration

Project Purpose: To demonstrate the efficacy of a large solar thermal storage heating system.
Project Abstract: 12 solar thermal panels heat a 22,000 gallon water tank over the summer. That stored heat is used to heat the building in the winter. Temperatures in and around the tank are recorded to judge heat loss.
