Largest solar water heating system in eastern US

A system of 1600 solar thermal heat collection tubes for a new student housing complex, the ‘green dorm’, at the University of South Carolina, US, has been supplied by Thermomax of the UK.

The installation is said to be the largest solar water heating system in eastern US. The Thermomax system has been installed at the university’s West Quadrangle, a 500-bed living–learning complex.

The construction has been designed to achieve Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) certification as a green building.
