In residential applications one to four solar collectors (4 ft x 6.5ft x 3in.) resembling thin skylights, are mounted on your roof, fence, or ground mounted rack. An insulated, flexible fluid line runs from the roof to the hot water tank(s). Once connected, the solar water heating appliance is quickly ready for everyday use. West Coast Solar can scale a SHW system up to provide the same benefits to commercial users of hot water and other thermal operations like food services, hospitality, multi-family accommodation, car washes, community centers, agriculture, industrial process and government buildings.
