U.S. Military Goes Green with Solar Industries Solar Pool Heating Systems; Solar Manufacturer Responds with Eagle Claw Custom Racking Solution

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. Solar heating provides a clean, domestic, and affordable solution to dramatically reduce operating costs of recreational and combat training pools.

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.
