Abstract:

A growing number of buildings are equipped to capture solar energy for space and water heating. Calculations for a local Navy two-story apartment building using available weather and insolation data indicate that during a typical year a solar collector with an area of 1000 square feet, 13 the plan area of the building, could supply 173 million Btu, 37 of the heat required, at an annual cost of 9 per million Btu. This could be reduced to 5 per million Btu if the first cost of the collector were reduced from the estimated 8 to 3 per square foot. Author
