New design standards for solar water heaters in new construction were adopted

SolarLogic logoNeeded upgrades on the solar water heaters at Rudolpho Anaya Elementary School resulted in new design standards for solar hot water systems for the District. Ordinarily, gas serves as the main source of energy for the water heaters that are backed up by solar. SolarLogic, a renewable energy company in Santa Fe, provided their expertise in reversing the design of the solar water heaters at the school whereby solar may serve as the primary heat source. The new more economical design is now being used in all new construction and will be introduced to upgrade existing domestic hot water heaters in the District as it becomes cost effective.
