Solar Heating comes to the Algonquin Inn

At long last the work has finally started on our Solar Heating system for the Algonquin Inn.
After 2 years of planing and waiting for the right time to start work ,end of season,
construction is well on the way.
This will mean that we will have Solar heated water for all of our rooms and suites,
this is the first phase of two,the second phase is to also have the Restaurant and reception for the Algonquin Inn running on it's own separate Solar powered hot water system.
The net result will be a significant reduction in out overall carbon foot print,as hot water is the the most significant area of consumption of power.
This is a continuation of our environmental plan which has already earned us the 4 keys eco rating from the Hotel Association of Canada out of a possible 5.

Sun is the nearest star to our planet and the energy provided by the sun can be used in many different ways. One most important use of sun energy is the production of electricity. These days many countries are switching towards the solar heating systems. These systems are considered cost effective and Eco-friend ally.

These days many solar simulator software's are available in the market and these soft-wares are in photo voltaic, which can be used as planning or as monitoring tool for the solar heating systems. Polysun solar simulator software is one from them. This solar simulator software is used for accurate designing of solar Thermal systems and for dimensioning the whole solar system.
