If you’re attending Intersolar in San Francisco this July, be sure to set time aside to attend the Solar Heating and Cooling: Innovations & Applications session.
That’s when Gal Moyal, Free Hot Water’s chief engineer and CEO, will present a breakthrough solar thermal case study that shows how solar thermal is now cost competitive with natural gas heating systems for apartment building renovations.
The session takes place on Wednesday, July 10, 2013 at 11:15 AM, at the InterContinental Hotel, which is down the street from the Moscone Convention Center. Gal will join three other speakers presenting on innovative solar thermal design and engineering.
For Gal’s case study, he’ll give the audience an overview of the solar thermal design and economics behind a 2013 50-unit apartment building renovation project, which was engineered by Free Hot Water to be cost competitive with a natural gas system–before any incentives were applied.
As part of the economic portion of the presentation, Gal will reveal the four competitive natural gas system bids that were received by the apartment building owner, as well as Free Hot Water’s bid.
He’ll also talk about what made the project so price competitive before incentives, as well as its design aspects, which included a hydronic solar heating and solar hot water system, a small solar PV system, a natural gas back-up system, energy efficiency measures, and a web-based centralized energy monitoring system.
In addition to seeing Gal’s session, please stop by and say hello to the rest of the Free Hot Water team at Booth 7821.
See you in San Francisco, July 9th-11th. Registration and more info on the Intersolar conference is available at www.intersolar.us.
