NEW WHITE PAPER FROM ONSET OFFERS TIPS ON OPTMIZING SOLAR THERMAL SYSTEM PERFORMANCE
BOURNE, MA, August 12, 2009 — Solar thermal energy appears poised for a renaissance in the United States, as the Obama Administration presses forward with its green energy agenda. But the revival could be short-lived unless solar hot systems are maintained properly.
Consumers still remember problems associated with solar systems that were purchased during the green energy boom of the Carter Administration. Too often units were either installed incorrectly or never maintained. Energy savings were promised, but not delivered.
A new white paper from Onset, Optimizing Solar Thermal Performance with Data Loggers, discusses how solar thermal systems, with the help of portable data loggers, can be optimized to deliver the financial benefits residential and commercial users hope to achieve through their investments. The paper shows installers and engineers how portable data logging devices can be used to measure performance of solar thermal systems, pinpoint any defects or inefficiencies, and optimize performance for greater return on investment.
The white paper is available as a free download from Onset’s website at /solar.
