The Broadway Apartments affordable housing project in Fort Myers is going solar, and panels are starting to be placed on the south facing roofs.

Solar Water Heating Panels Mounted on Roof

Each of the 40 dwelling units will have a solar water heating system that will save water heating costs for the residents. Each system contains two Fafco Revolution 500 Series solar collectors totaling 48 square feet of collector area. Inside each apartment is an integrated control module that circulates a heat transfer fluid to the roof mounted collectors, heating the domestic water supply with a heat exchanger.

Fafco Solar is on the roof this week and next installing the panels. Take a drive by and check out the progress! The site is located at 2909 Broadway in Fort Myers.
