All of the solar collectors and expansion tanks are mounted on the roof at the Fort Myers Broadway Apartment Solar Hot Water project. This photograph of the 20 solar collector systems on the north building is taken from the roof of south building. All of the collector systems are mounted on aluminum rails attached to the roof with non-penetrating S-5 Clamps.
Today we started mounting photovoltaic (PV) panels that will run the integrated control modules and circulation pumps. We are also starting to connect the FAFCO crosslinked polyethylene tubing so we can begin filling the collectors with heat transfer fluid tomorrow.
The progress has been great, and the highly visible project looks very cool from the road!
