Apricus solar hot water collectors on the Gates Foundation building

 

Apricus solar hot water collectors on the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation building in Seattle

Project Name: Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation - Seattle

Application: Cafeteria & Bathroom Facilities

Location: Seattle, WA, USA

Collectors:  47 x AP-30

Overview: At The Gates Foundation Campus in Seattle, a combination of energy saving lights, natural ventilation, occupancy sensors, and efficient mechanical and plumbing systems work together to produce a savings of 40% of energy consumption compared to similar buildings. A large part of the energy savings (an estimated 37% energy reduction) is due to 47 Apricus Evacuated Tube Solar Collectors installed on the building’s roof feeding two 1,000 gallon storage tanks. The system utilizes the suns energy to preheat the hot water supply servicing the cafeterias and bathroom facilities using 1,300 - 7,500 gallons of hot water daily. Offsetting natural gas, the system is able to save the burning of 4,750 therms per year of natural gas.
