Cocoa, FL (PRWEB) February 03, 2013
The SRCC was incorporated in 1980 as a non-profit, independent, third-party certification body providing authoritative performance ratings, certifications and standards for solar thermal products. They offer expert recommendations and advice to governments and other entities, as well as guidance and protection for consumers and stakeholders.
The SRCC promotes the development of reliable solar thermal technologies and accountability for performance claims.
Continually paving the path to excellence, the SRCC proudly announces three new services:
SRCC’s OG-300® Modeling Service™: This new service provides SRCC participants with an understanding of what their system ratings will look like if they are considering making changes to their existing SRCC OG-300 certified systems. Participants may provide variations using the SRCC Simulations Input Data Sheet, and the SRCC will provide ratings that include SF and SEF daily, and four annual SF and SEF: (One high solar radiation [Phoenix, AZ], one low solar radiation [Madison, WI], and the participant may choose two additional cities). SRCC participants can look forward to receiving an e-mail in early February detailing the three easy steps it takes to get modeling results within just five business days.
SRCC’s Tank Information Listing Service (TILSTM): Offering a win-win situation for both tank manufacturers and applicants, the SRCC announces TILS as a continuous improvement to the certification process. Manufacturers applying for SRCC OG-300 Certification will have access to a list of tanks that have already been tested in accordance with SRCC™ TM-1 Solar
Domestic Hot Water System and Component Test Protocols, one of the requirements for attaining certification. This service provides applicants with a decision-making tool while designing their systems, which can benefit the tank manufacturer as well. If the applicant’s goal is to speed up the certification process (while saving valuable time, money and resources by bypassing the tank testing phase), it will be worth perusing the TILS section of the SRCC website.
SRCC’s Certification Ratings Information Service (CRIS™): CRIS will provide subscribers with up-to-date certification information. Appreciating that their business partners’ time is valuable, it is the SRCC’s goal to save them the effort it takes to research changes in the status of SRCC certifications. Subscription includes the detailed data for SRCC certified collectors and systems (available 24/7), a secure portal upon login, reliable customer service during SRCC office hours, and real-time status notification of certification status changes.
