Title: Performance of Solar Hot Water Collectors for Electricity Production and Climate Control
Cornell University students will evaluate solar thermal collectors and thermal storage systems that are commercially available for residential heat and electrical power systems. Data will be gathered to establish the criteria to compare solar thermal systems to traditional systems for residential heating, climate control, and electrical power generation.
