“We have been tracking a steady increase in solar heating for military pools and aquatic facilities across the country."
Lakewood, NJ (PRWEB) May 25, 2012
In an effort to go green, military bases tend to overlook their biggest energy consumers – in most cases swimming pools and aquatic training facilities. Heating a pool with natural gas, propane, or electric with a fossil-fuel boiler consumes a massive amount of energy, often costing thousands of dollars every month to maintain a comfortable temperature. In addition, fossil fuel prices can fluctuate significantly and are expected to rise over the next decade.
Solar heating provides a clean, domestic, and affordable solution to dramatically reduce operating costs of recreational and combat training pools. Solar Industries, the largest U.S. manufacturer of solar pool heaters, has developed a solution to make solar pool heating even more appealing to bases.
“We have been tracking a steady increase in solar heating for military pools and aquatic facilities across the country,” said Solar Industries President and CEO Dave Sizelove. “Often, these installations require custom-built racking to mount panels, which can sometimes become over-engineered, and consequently cost-prohibitive.”
To that end, Solar Industries is proud to present its Eagle Claw™ Mounting and Racking System. Consisting entirely of stainless-steel and structural aluminum, the Eagle Claw™ System is made in the United States and combines ease of installation, long-lasting performance, and unrivaled cost efficiency for both ballast- and pole-mounted racks.
