Abstract:

Energy requirements of existing Coast Guard-owned public quarters were assessed based on a survey of energy usage for FY 1975. A computerized solar collector heat gain model was developed to identify regions in which solar heating might be cost beneficial under a conservative scenario and using generalized data. A region containing 45 structures with 74 public quarters at 10 sites was identified. Energy requirements and regional insolation and weather data for each specific site were then used in the model to determine solar collector requirements and cost break-even periods. Based on these results, a solar heating applications research project was outlined to capitalize on solar energy. Author
