HYBRID PV/SOLAR THERMAL SWIMMING POOL HEATING PANELS
ARE SHOWN IN FIGURE 1 BELOW, WE COMBINE PHOTOVOLTAIC (PV) ELECTRICITY GENERATING SOLAR PANELS WITH OUR RUBBER SOLAR THERMAL SWIMMING POOL HEATING PANELS TO PROVIDE GRID-TIED SOLAR ELECTRICITY PLUS SOLAR SWIMMING POOL HEATING IN THE SPRING THROUGH FALL, WHILE REDUCING YOUR ELECTRIC BILL AND MAKING THE SOLAR PANELS ELECTRICITY GENERATION 15% MORE EFFICIENT BY COOLING THE PANELS!
THESE PANELS ARE DESCRIBED BELOW:
FURTHERMORE, BY INCORPORATING THE PHOTOVOLTAIC PANELS, YOU ARE ELIGIBLE FOR FEDERAL 30% SOLAR INCOME TAX CREDIT (NOT AVAILABLE FOR SOLAR SWIMMING POOL HEATERS ALONE).
A TYPICAL QUOTATION FOR THIS COMBINED PV/POOL HEATER SYSTEM IS PRESENTED BELOW:
TYPICAL HYBRID SYSTEM PRICE QUOTATION
TEN, 330 WATT NOMINAL POWER SUNPREME PHOTOVOLTAIC PANELS, WITH EPDM RUBBER TUBE MATS PRESSED AGAINST THE REAR OF SWIMMING POLL HEATING PANELS, FLUSH MOUNTED TO SOUTH ROOF, AS IS SHOWN IN THE ATTACHED DRAWING. A REFLECTIVE FOIL IS MOUNTED BETWEEN THE RUBBER TUBE MATS AND THE REAR GLASS OF THE PV PANEL. THIS INCREASES THE OUTPUT OF THE PANEL TO 380 WATTS.
THE RUBBER TUBE MAT MANIFOLDS ARE CONNECTED TO THE EXISTING SWIMMING POOL CIRCULATION PUMP, AND POOL WATER IS CIRCULATED THROUGH THE MANIFOLDS AND THE RUBBER TUBE MATS, THUS HEATING THE POOL AND COOLING THE PV SOLAR PANELS, THUS MAKING THEM 15% MORE EFFICIENT IN GENERATING ELECTRICITY AS COMPARED TO CONVENTIONALLY MOUNTED PV PANELS.
NO CASH DOWN FINANCING FOR HYBRID PV/SOLAR SWIMMING POOL HEATERS
The following summarizes the no cash down financing of our PV + solar swimming pool heating.
Note: For solar swimming pool heating alone, the 30% federal and state tax rebate does not apply, but with the inclusion of PV panels, the rebates are applicable.
Please also note that for a $10,000 loan for which your net cost after rebate is only $7,000, you will be paying down the loan for the remainder of 2015 at an interest rate applicable to a principal of $7,000, but when you get your $3,000 rebate in April 2016, you can use it to pay down the principal to $7,000.
With the 3.5 year payback shown in the following calculation, you should have positive cash flow for a 120 month loan immediately after the installation!
TOTAL INSTALLED PRICE: $10,000-
NET COST AFTER 30% FED INCOME TAX SOLAR REBATE (CONNECTICUT) $7,000.00
NET COST IN NY STATE, AFTER 30% FED INCOME TAX SOLAR REBATE AND NY STATE 25% REBATE $5,250.00
NET COST IN CONNECTICUT, AFTER 30% FED INCOME TAX SOLAR REBATE AND CONNECTICUT $1,520- REBATE $5,480.00
ELECTRICAL AND POOL HEATING ENERGY COST SAVINGS FOR A TEN, 380 WATT/PANEL (3.8 KWATT) INSTALLATION:
1. ELECTRICAL POWER COLLECTION AT NOON
WITH 1,000 WATT/m2 SOLAR IRRADIANCE = 10 X 380 WATTS/PANEL
= 3.8 KWATT-HR X 6 EFFECTIVE HOURS/DAY
= 22.8 KWATT-HRS/SUNNY DAY X $0.25/KWATT-HR. = $5.70 PER SUNNY DAY X 200 SUNNY DAYS PER YEAR IN CT.
= $1,140/YEAR ELECTRICITY COST SAVINGS
2. THERMAL ENERGY COST SAVINGS
(NOT APPLICABLE IN CONVENTIONAL PHOTOVOLTAIC-ONLY INSTALLATION)
200 SQ. FOOT PANEL SOLAR THERMAL COLLECTION AREA PER SUNNY DAY IN SPRING THROUGH FALL:
= 200 SQ. FT. X 300 BTU/HR./SQ. FOOT SOLAR IRRADIANCE = 61,000 BTU/HOUR AT NOON
ASSUMING 120 SUNNY DAYS IN SPRING, SUMMER AND FALL DURING THE SWIMMING SEASON,
= 61,000 BTU/SUNNY DAY = 0.67 GALLON OF PROPANE = $2.70
= $2.70 SAVINGS PER DAY AT $4.00/GALLON PROPANE COST
= $2.70 X 120 SUNNY DAYS/YEAR = $323/YEAR THERMAL COST SAVINGS
PAYBACK PERIOD ASSUMING NO PROPANE OR ELECTRIC RATE PRICE INCREASES FOR CONNECTICUT
$1,140 + $323 = $1,463/YEAR
$5,480-/$1,463 = 3.75 YEARS = 45 MONTHS
= 27% RETURN ON YOUR INVESTMENT, TAX FREE!!
PAYBACK PERIOD ASSUMING NO OIL OR ELECTRIC RATE COST INCREASES FOR NY STATE
$5,250/$1,463 = 3.6 YEARS
=28% RETURN ON YOUR INVESTMENT TAX FREE!!
