Project Info COMPLETE Project Title


Project Number ET08SCG0008 Organization SoCalGas End-use Water Heating/DHW/HPWH Sector Residential Project Year(s) 2008 - 2011

Project Summary

The purpose of the Suncache demonstration project was to evaluate in-situ performance of SunCache solar water heating systems in residential applications. A SunCache solar collector (or an array of collectors) was installed at two multi-family residential sites and six single-family residential sites. The SunCache collector’s benefits were greatly increased as the occupant level and housing density increased. It was found to be least effective in early morning hours and late nights and more effective in summer than in winter.
