154. Solar Thermal 101 – getting to net-positive

Cornelius Koster installed 5.5 kilowatts of solar PV to generate electricity and 12.5 kilowatts of solar thermal collectors to supply more than enough hot water and heat for the suite. Excess energy is exported to the main house making the garage suite net-positive in terms of energy.

Solar thermal advocates are fond of reminding us that homes, especially those in Canada use about 70 per cent of their energy for heating. As solar photovoltaic prices continue to plummet, some net-zero home builders have started pairing solar PV with air-source heat pumps for space heating and electric resistance water heaters to produce hot water.
