Parts have been ordered to construct my idea for a hybrid solar electric/solar collector water heating system. Two systems integrated into one 5 gallon holding drum. A float valve will refill the system from our water tank as used. When we want to use the system we will turn on the recirculation pump that draws water through a copper pipe solar collector and there will also be installed from the 12v section of our solar electric system, a 24v 760w 30A heating element (using a 12v to 24v step-up converter) that can boost the system at our leisure. Well, that’s the plan, parts are on the way… Follow us for updates that will be beginning next week!
