WASHINGTON, DC:  The Delano, an upscale Apartment complex in downtown Washington DC, now has a solar thermal system providing a large portion of the building’s hot water supply.

Working in conjunction with Skyline Innovations, a third party solar developer, SES designed and installed a system that will offset a large portion of the building’s conventional gas-powered water heating system.  The solar system consists of 32 solar thermal panels and a 3,200 gallon solar storage tank, as well as a 200 gallon buffer tank.

Solar Water Heating System for Washington, DC Twin Apartment Complex

WASHINGTON, DC:  Solar Energy Services, Inc. recently completed the installation of a dual solar water heating system at a twin apartment complex in downtown Washington, DC.

Each of the two apartment buildings located on S Street were equipped with 20, 4′ x 10′ solar thermal collectors plumbed into a water storage tank.  The labor and material costs of the solar water heating systems have been absorbed by a third-party solar developer, Skyline Innovations, who will assume the role of a utility company for the solar portion of the building’s hot water load.
