Aquatherm Industries is proud to announce it has reached a milestone in the production of its solar pool heating systems, having manufactured and shipped a combined 25 million square feet of its Sunlite™ and Ecolite™ solar pool heater collectors/panels.

If stretched end-to-end, the tubing the collectors are composed of could circle the Earth two-and-a-half times.

A breakthrough in solar pool heating technology when introduced a decade ago in 2000, Sunlite™ and its vented counterpart, Ecolite™, still hold the title of the lowest cost solar thermal collector on the planet, per square foot. Aquatherm maintains two patents – one on the products, and one on the innovative insert-molding manufacturing process.

Another unique feature of the Sunlite™ and Ecolite™ products, up to 48 square feet of solar collector can be packaged in a lightweight 27” tall by 13” square box, as well as installation hardware. Convenient to inventory and easy to handle, the product is designed specifically with the retail, distribution, and do-it-yourself markets in mind.

Though the heating of water is measured in British Thermal Units (BTUs), the combined solar thermal capacity of 25 million square feet of the low-temperature unglazed polymer solar collector can also be expressed as 8.53 gigawatts (GW). By comparison, New York City‘s annual power consumption is approximately 5 GW.
