Case Study
PDF icon Covington City Hall solar heating case study.pdf

The city of Covington, Georgia recently installed a solar water heating and photovoltaic system on the Covington City Hall. Not only will the system save the city money, but will also educate the public about the myriad of benefits from solar water heating and photovoltaics. Flat-plate solar water heating collectors manufactured by Alternate Energy Technologies were installed on the roof of City Hall by Suncatcher of Atlanta. The collectors absorb the thermal energy from the sun, which heats up a propylene glycol mix. This mix is circulated through the system and passes through a heat exchanger, which transfers the heat to the potable water.  The system was installed in three days. A monitoring device allows city officials and the public to track energy savings.
