Since 2013, these 65 sets of Apricus evacuated tube solar water heaters have reliably supplied hot water to UCLA dormitory and dining facility. In 2020, an additional 103 sets of ETC-30 solar collectors will be installed to provide students in newly build dormitories with solar heated hot water.
Apricus has specialised the design, manufacture and supply of solar thermal collectors for more than 18 years but has also completed projects that incorporated heat pumps for the backup hot water. The advantage of heat pump water heaters is a high COP (coefficient of performance).
