  • R&D Phase: SS Solar Storage Tank Implementing a Mantel HX w/PCM Storage 
    • The scientific research has been done to prove that optimized tank shape, a mantle HX, and optimized flow rates produce optimum thermal stratification and thus larger storage capability. There exists the possibility to store more heat with multiple 'PCM tubes' in the SS tank. Work needs to be done to optimize the number and size of tubes.
  • R&D Phase: Heat Pump With Night Time Storage (Air-to-Water or Air-to-PCM) 
  • The important point here is to realize that Air Source Heat Pumps can be very efficient during the warmer part of the day. Implementing a storage tank that charges up during the day and then when strip heat would have been turned on, the tank storage is used to boost the Heat Pump's output. Control methodologies still need some work, but off the shelf SDHW controllers have a promising possibility and offer current economies of scale.
  • Custom High R-Value Exterior Entry Way Doors 
  • Utilizing a combination of expanding poly-iso foam and Vacuum Insulation Panels or Aerogel we can produce doors to any specification. We often utilize mixed media to enhance the aesthetic of the door to meet the customers style.
  • Custom High R-Value Movable (on tracks) Exterior Window Insulation

  • Photovoltaic Module Production Plants

  • Standardized PV System Designs 

  • Standardized SDHW System Designs

  • Computer Controlled Whole House Energy Management Systems
