Skip’s Tips – Advanced Solar Thermal Workshop – Tuesday, June 25

This evening will focus on pool solar water heating systems.  In light of upcoming changes to the CSI-Thermal program to provide rebates forcommercial/multifamily solar pool systems, it’s a good time to review the technology and design options.  Skip will show results of FCHART computer simulations with various collector/cover options, discuss traditional pumping options in light of Time of Use rate impacts, and discuss issues when combining pool solar heat with domestic hot water and/or space heat into combisystems.  This information will be in the vein of best practices.  This workshop will not cover CSI-Thermal requirements or the rebates.

This installment of Skip’s Tips is for an advance audience level.

PLEASE NOTE:  This event will be held at CCSE’s new location at:

9325 Sky Park Court, Suite 100
San Diego, CA 92123
