Mercedes-Benz Training Center
Turning Sunshine into Hot Water
Hardy Services Division, in conjunction with Alagasco, designed and installed a 70-gallon solar and natural gas hybrid domestic water heating system for the Mercedes-Benz Training Center. The system utilizes high performance Schuco brand solar collectors and hot water storage tank that separates potable water from the solar heat transfer fluid. An intelligent burner control system allows the training center to draw a large volume of hot water from the tank before the gas burner is switched on. The result is a high performance hot water system that maximizes solar input and minimizes gas consumption.
