Solar thermal systems, used to heat water and interior space, work particularly well in urban areas where roof space is limited and the building occupancy load is substantial. With high efficiencies, good incentives, and favorable ROI, today’s systems displace traditional fuels such as oil and natural gas, providing a clean safe energy source while locking in long-term energy costs. Systems now have remote monitoring capabilities, so owners and installers/servicers can easily manage equipment, reducing O&M costs. The session will cover planning, incentives, financing, installation, monitoring, operations and maintenance. We’ll explain matching supply and demand, types of solar thermal technologies, along with the unique challenges of NYC construction.
