FREE Commercial Solar System Design!If you have a possible commercial solar project you wish to talk to us about, call us now to discuss. We can design the system for you, then depending on where you are in the country we can either install it for you, or refer you to an experienced contractor to install the system for you. Alternatively, we can simply package up the solar equipment you will need and ship it to you. Most solar water heating projects are very simple to install, especially on businesses that ues lots of hot water such as car washes, laundry mats, hotels, restaurants and pools. Someone who knows how to fasten bolts and pipe together could install a system in a solar car wash for themselves.
Don't forget there are large tax benefits for installing a solar system! Commercial Grants
CANADA -The ecoENERGY Incentive program for commercial solar ENDED 1st OCTOBER 2010. All applications had to be in before this date. Now the Canadian election is finished the ecoENERGY grant is likely to be re-introduced, hopefully soon.
Please contact us and we will keep you updated on any future commercial incentives that are available
USA - 30% Federal Tax Incentive to Indiviuals and businesses that install solar thremal heating system on or before Dec 31, 2016.
Solar Tax Credits
- 50% Accelerated Capital Cost Allowance for Clean Energy Generation.
A 50% accelerated CCA is provided under Class 43.2 of Schedule II to the Income Tax Regulations for specified clean energy generation equipment. Eligible equipment includes solar thermal, solar air and solar photo voltaic equipment while project size restrictions have been eliminated. Class 43.2 was introduced in 2005 and is currently available for assets acquired on or after February 23, 2005 and before 2012.
A high hot water use makes Laundromats another great candidate for solar water heating.
Generally as it gets warm and sunny out we like to treat our cars to a clear bath. Car Washes are a great place for solar water heating as they can provide energy saving of up to 80%.
Hotels often have swimming pools and also use a huge amount of hot water for laudry, restaurant and showers.
Ontario many hotels still use electricity to heat water. With the new
time of use metering & billing this means you are using electricity
at peak rates to heat water for your guests. Why use electricity when
you can get free energy from the sun?
Food processing, steam processes in fact any process that needs hot
water or steam, solar can be used to preheat the water.
For more information about Commercial Solar Water Heating please visit our main company website. There are case studies, more photos and videos of commercial projects with using Latitude51 Solar commercial water heating systems.
PAW Solex DWHX
Our Pre-engineered solar commercial water heating systems use PAW Solex DWHX solar pump station with its built in double wall heat exchanger. This unit is ideal for any commercial environment and is certified for potable water applications?
Large Solar Water Tanks for Commercial Use
In most commercial solar water heating projects, a large storage tank ranging from 400 to 800 gallons is required depending on the size of the system. We can offer special open loop insulated tanks that are built on site. These tanks have the advantage of lower shipping costs due to their pre fab design and light wight. Our system are priced with or with out a solar storage tank as this is an item that can often but found or manufactured locally saving on shipping costs.

Why use Evacuated Tube Solar Collectors.
are two main types of glazed solar water heating collector, evacuated
tubes and flat plate collectors. They both work very well, but they
both work in very different ways. Which one you use will depend on a
number of factors. The links below will take you to articles and info
to help you decide which type is best for you.
Some of these articles below will open in a separate window. They might take a few seconds to open, please be patient!
- Solar collector Power output
- ie how many BTU's per day. If you only read one of these articles,
read this first! It has info that covers most of the other articles
- Solar Collector Test Reports - There are many types of collector, all produce different amounts of heat.
- Where do you live - ie the climate you live in affects the performance of the solar collectors.
- Solar Collector Peak Power Output
- Most collectors have a "Peak Power Output" , this is similar to a car
manufacturer reporting "maximum Horse Power. Like cars, this varies a
lot, make sure you buy a collector with the highest Peak Power Output.
There are many collectors for sale in Canada and our collectors produce
about 2.5 times more power then the worst performing ones you can buy.
In general if you live in a warm climate then Flat plates
collectors work very well. If you live in a cold or cloudy climate
evacuated tubes work much better. Evacuated tubes are better in
commercial applications as the maximum temperature they can produce is
much hotter than flat plates. Our collectors reach a maximum
temperatures of 270 Degrees C.
