ACR Solar International Corp. Introduces Low Cost Solar Water Heating Systems to Fight Rising Energy Costs in Caribbean, Pacific Islands and Other Non-Freeze Regions

Share Article

To help fight the high cost of electricity to heat water, new high quality, “made in the USA” solar hot water systems are being introduced to the islands. They are revolutionary because the solar collectors that pull in the sun’s energy to heat water weigh only 19 pounds yet offer high performance, attractive appearance, and ease of installation.

You make the best solar water heating system in the country and your service and support are excellent

Typical solar water heating systems on the islands use an unattractive heavy tank on the roof with collectors below and are called passive “Thermosyphon” systems. The higher performing active solar water heating systems use a tank that is usually on the ground level and a small pump to move water through the collectors to collect solar energy and deposit it in the tank. For water heating, these systems are far smaller and much more cost effective than solar electric “PV” systems.

Active systems tended to cost quite a bit more so they have not been used as much on the islands. This has changed with the introduction of the low cost “Skyline” solar collectors and systems which are price competitive with thermosyphon systems but offer many advantages over them including low roof loading. In net effect the Skyline systems are passive because they use a solar electric (PV) panel to power a small electronic pump so the systems are 100% “run by the Sun.” “You make the best solar water heating system in the country and your service and support are excellent,” says Mike and Manny from St. Croix.

ACR Solar International is very supportive of economic development on the islands and welcomes collaboration and Dealers. These solar water heating products are very easy to ship and install and contribute to energy independence, reduction of pollution as well as improved sanitation and lifestyle.
