Skip’s Tips – Advanced Solar Thermal Workshop

Today’s workshop will be an overview of solar thermal collector types and uses.  Selecting the appropriate type of collector is critical for best system performance and reliability.  We will cover unglazed, flat plate (serpentine and harp), evacuated tube, concentrator, and hybrid PV/thermal collectors.

This edition of Skip’s Tips is for a general audience level.

PLEASE NOTE:  This event will be held at the Energy Innovation Center.
