2013 - 2015

This field assessment evaluates the effectiveness of an emerging energy efficient technology that uses solar energy. It directly supports the penetration of similar technologies in the residential and small commercial marketplace. The assessment demonstrates how a multifamily pool pump system was retrofitted with a variable speed drive (VSD) pump and two solar-powered pumps to reduce grid energy consumption, especially during peak hours.

The project seeks to verify that this proposed emerging technology system is able to maintain the minimum health code required filtration flow rate and to quantify the total energy savings. The energy savings result from the installation of an efficient VSD pump and two solar photovoltaic powered pumps.
