Solar heat and solar power: both technologies that use the sun’s energy, but that work in different ways.
Solar power (photovoltaics) converts solar energy into electricity.
Solar-thermal systems – the focus of an upcoming presentation – offer hot water in ready supply and cost a fraction of the price of photovoltaic systems.
Alex Fox from Schuco USA will explain how a solar-thermal system works and what it costs to install and operate, at a presentation hosted by the Town of Mansfield on Wednesday, April 22 at 7:30 pm in the council chambers at the Audrey P. Beck Municipal Building, 4 South Eagleville Road.
Pre-register this week by calling the Mansfield recycling coordinator Virginia Walton at 429-3333.
