SSF is starting a new webinar series to feature green energy and environmentally friendly technologies with big potential benefits. The purpose of Going Green Without Going Into the Red is to learn about green technology applications and provide developers an opportunity to feature their innovations.
The first webinar in this series is on June 28th and we will book others as we find impactful technologies to review. The format will be
Solar Hot Water Systems - What you Need to Know
June 28, 2017
1:15 to 2:15 PM EDT
Solar energy can be used in several ways to heat water for domestic, commercial and industrial uses. Examples include photo voltaic cells to generate electricity for hot water heaters and both passive and active thermal solar systems for direct heat. With the cost of solar equipment dropping, there are significant savings in solar hot water, but what are the considerations in determining which technology is best for your situation?
In this 60-minute webinar, Scott Sklar will review the pros and cons of investing in a solar hot water system (residential, commercial and industrial uses) and what to consider in making the investment decision. We will also hear from Arden Steiner, co-founder of Rayviance. The firm has added innovations to its license for a solar hot water technology based on a pump free thermosyphon convection flow system. Arden has installed the system in a number of commercial and residential sites and will present them as case studies in the webinar. He will explain why Rayviance has significant operational and cost advantages over the alternatives. Scott will question Arden about the technology and it's advantages.

Previously, Scott Sklar served for 15 years simultaneously running two Washington, DC-based trade associations, as Executive Director of both the Solar Energy Industries Association and the National BioEnergy Industries Association.
Arden Steiner is a business owner in the energy industry. He is the general manager of Affordable Fuels, a full service energy marketer in Middleburg, Pa. Arden is also one of the founders of Rayviance, which has the US license for the solar hot water system. The technology was originally developed by the U.S. Agency for International Development for a project in Nepal. Arden and his team subsequently added a number of improvements to enhance the system's operational efficiency and durability. Arden will provide case studies by describing specific installations
