Hi menaus2;
I would like to hear how much the collector costs?
I suspect electric PV panels cost much less for an equivalent system.
Your 5000btu/hr = about 1465W of power.
PV panels are quite cheap today. It is easy to get them for about $0.30/W
for a PV panel cost of about $440. You can also get cheap used panels for about
$0.10/W.
Does it make sense to use hydronic collectors today when PV is so cheap?
