Solar water heating is a clean, environmentally friendly, reliable, and cost-effective means of providing domestic hot water. Water heating accounts for approximately 25% of the total energy used in a typical single-family home. An electric water heater is the biggest energy user of all appliances in the home. High efficiency, low cost “Evacuated Tube Systems” solar water heaters are an emerging renewable energy means to heat water for domestic and commercial use. The evacuated (vacuum) tubes consist of two-walled extremely strong borosilicate glass. The outer tube allows light rays to pass through and the inner tube absorbs ultraviolet (UV) rays from direct/indirect sun. UV rays produce heat regardless of the ambient temperature. Heat is conducted into a center copper heat tube which heats the water in the header of the collector.
