Night Sky Radiation Test Results for Aug 12-13 2012

More Data on our Night Sky Radiation Cooling/Building Integrated Solar Thermal System.

We had the Fluke sensors out again last night collecting data every 10 minutes on our Night Sky Radiation Cooling system. I the spirit of the close of the Olympic Games in London last night we reached a personal best and might have a new World Record! We logged an average U Factor of 3.2/ The best I have ever seen before this (That was not done on our SubSolarThermal product.) The best product tested in the New Mexico Study of 2007 was Yazaki White 94.

This is the data page of the Yazaki Unit from the New Mexico NSRC Report 

 

Night Sky Radiation Cooling is a great alternative to Air Conditioning and Swamp Coolers. It cost a fraction of the cost of AC to operate and uses a fraction of the amount of water needed to cool your house. The system is silent to operate if it is used in conjunction with a Radiant floor system.

Sol-ice manufactures our SubSolarThermal panels to go under roofing and siding to create the cooling (This system can also be used in the day to heat DHW, Domestic Hot Water, whole home heating and swimming pools.)

We have a growing base of Authorized Installers around the country and will also travel to train a well qualified contractor on how the product works and how they can become trained as an Authorized Installer.

Today is day 2 of a week long test on how our SubSolarThermal Building Integrated Solar Thermal roofing works under Standing Seam metal roofing. The data that is coming in shows we have developed a significantly more energy efficient way to disparate heat from your building than any of the systems tested in the New Mexico Test done in 2006.

This graph shows the intake temperature taken before the SubSolarThermal test unit, the Out Take Temperature, the Ambient Air Temperature and the White Plate Temperature from last night.

This graph shows the Delta-T (Difference between the intake and outtake temperatures) and the U factor.

This graph shows the BTU per square foot per hour generated.

Building Integrated Solar Thermal by Sol-Ice

Sol-Ice “BIST” sytstem on the “Greenest Home in America 2010″ by Green Builder Magazine

Building Integrated Solar Thermal by Sol-Ice sounds like what it is, a heating system that uses solar gain to heat your home, pool, domestic hot water and DHW. “BIST” does not make any changes to the buildings aesthetics it simple disappears BEHIND roofing, siding, stucco, brick or stone. By integrating into the buildings facade it blends into the architectural design and creates a sustainable source of heat seamlessly. If you configure your mechanical room properly (our team of engineers and Apreators can help with that) then you can also reduce your Air conditioning by 75%-100%. Imagine a home that looks like every other one in the neighborhood (no need to even ask the HOA if it fits with the RESTRICTIVE Covenants) but uses no electricity for cooling the home. The pay back on a system like this could be as little as 3 years if it is also doing your hot water. Contact us to become an Authorized Installer

Why Building Integrated Solar Thermal (BIST)- Sol-Ice Video

Why Building Integrated Solar Thermal (BIST)? Testimonial of One Builder.

Garrett Strong of Tall Pines Construction talks about the 3 most important benefits for him on the Sol-Ice SubSolarThermal Building Integrated Solar Thermal BIST panels he installed on the “2010 Greenest Home in America” (As judged by Green Builder Magazine.)

This BIST product is great for heating your home but can also be used for solar cooling. During the day we can move the heat off the siding or roofing and either use it to heat a pool, hot tub or domestic hot water, or we can dump the excess heat using any number of different heat dumps. We are also able to use the SubSolarThermal to drop the temperature of the home at night using it as an integral part of a Night Sky Radiation Cooling NSRC system.

press release
July 27, 2011, 9:00 a.m. EDT OMVS: Solar Energy Boom Creates Ideal Environment for Commercializing Innovative TechnologiesImpressive 67% Growth in 2010 Confirms the Solar-Power Industry is Becoming Mainstream

TAMPA, Fla., Jul 27, 2011 (BUSINESS WIRE) — With the solar energy market rapidly transforming from a niche business into a worldwide movement, On the Move Systems, Inc. (otcqb:OMVS) is focused on carving out an early position in this booming industry.
OMVS President and CEO Chet Gutowsky said this week that the company’s decision to pursue partnerships with solar technology innovators who are creating the next generation of innovative equipment, appliances and services was prompted by key indicators in several important market sectors.
“First and foremost, governments have realized that solar energy investment has become politically popular around the globe, and they’ve embraced ambitious solar agendas that will ultimately help accelerate the growth of the industry,” Gutowsky said. “A good example of government involvement can be seen in the U.S. Department of Energy’s recently announced $2 billion in conditional loan guarantees for two concentrating solar power (CSP) projects, which use sunlight to heat water or another fluid that generates steam to power a turbine. That kind of government support is helping to make the U.S. a world leader in solar technology, and On the Move Systems plans to capitalize by partnering with leading innovators to tackle the clean energy demands of the near future.”
According to a June 16 report by the trade group Solar Energy Industries Association (SEIA) and GTM Research, continuing innovations have led to falling prices for solar technology, causing a boom in domestic consumer demand in recent years.
“With analysts predicting the U.S. to become the world’s largest solar market within the next few years, manufacturers are increasingly looking to the U.S. to site their facilities,” said Tom Kimbis, SEIA Vice-President of Strategy and External Affairs, in a public statement. “This strong demand continues to make solar one of the fastest growing industries in the United States and a source of thousands of solar jobs from manufacturing and installation to engineering and sales.”
Many industry analysts agree that solar’s explosive growth shows no signs of slowing down. According to a June 15 article in The New York Times, Ahmar M. Zaman and Shawn Lockman, analysts at Piper Jaffray in New York, estimate that the solar industry will continue to grow by about 32 percent a year over the next decade. A recent study by Allianz Global Investors found that 78 percent of investors think green technology could be the “next great American industry,” and a recent article from Bloomberg New Energy Finance noted that new investment in clean energy rose 22 percent in 2010 to $41.7 billion in the second quarter following a jump in funding for solar thermal power plants.
“Although some 7,500 for-profit companies are competing in today’s market for solar energy products and services, we believe the industry is just now beginning to build the momentum that will see it reach its full potential,” Gutowsky said. “After all, the sun is by far our largest source of energy, delivering 970 trillion kWh worth of free energy every day. That means the solar energy the Earth receives every minute is greater than the amount of energy from fossil fuels used by the world in an entire year.
“Our goal at OMVS is to discover and apply the innovative new technologies that will harness this awesome power and position our company as a leader in building what promises to be the next great engine of economic growth,” he said.

Sol-Ice introduces CoSolarThermal a Solar PV Solar Thermal Hybrid they call CoSolarGeneration

Chris Piper COO of Sol-Ice installing the connector tube from one CoSolarThermal to the next

Sol-Ice Engineered Systems, Inc together with our partners GlobalWatt (producers of Solar PV) and Solar Dock (producers of a non penetrating Solar Rack system) have created our first instillation of CoSolarGeneration. The intention of this system is for use as a test facility to gather data about how effective CoSolarThermal is at increasing Electricity production in PV and creating Solar Thermal energy (for heating water) from one location. This system is an adaption of the already in use SubSolarThermal which produces Solar Thermal energy from under the surface of roofing or siding (Yes that is right this is a Solar Thermal panel with out a Panel.)

This is the next generation of Solar Thermal Technology in Utah and the world. Sol-Ice has found the easiest way to make any Solar PV able to generate Solar Thermal Energy. Contact Sol-Ice to find out more about CoSolarGeneration and becoming a Development Partner or Authorized Installer.

Solar PV and Solar Thermal Technology Growth Projections.

Dennis N. Duce the "Creative CEO"

I got a Google Alert while I was out on my morning run with a link to this great article about Solar From Bloomberg (Solar Costs May Already Rival Coal, Spurring Installation) so I read it during my cool down walk back to my hotel. As CEO of Sol-Ice Engineered systems I am very interested in what is happening in the Solar PV/Solar thermal Hybrid world. I am glad to hear that they are calling for so much growth in both the Solar PV and Solar Thermal markets.

This shows the back side of the CoSolarThermal which fits right behind the Solar PV Module.

I believe our CoSolarThermal Hybrid Module is going to revolutionize things int he Market as well as in what we are calling CoSolarGeneration ™. The up front cost per BTU is much less than any other Solar Thermal product I have come across and since the units are designed to insert behind ANY brand of Solar PV they are inexpensive to install and help the PV to produce an increase in electrical output.

The Area in the front of this home has SubSolarThermal under the siding to help heat the building. This area (About 300 sq ft is equal to 3 large solar radiant panels on the roof.)

Our SubSolarThermal is the most efficient concealed Solar product on the market. It gives the massive advantage of being able to produce heat with our patent pending Solar Thermal Technology that is hidden under almost any type of siding or roofing. Yes we have found a way to develop solar thermal with out having a panel to look at and we want you to become a part of our growing team.

As this market grows we are always looking for partners to help us build our brand. We need installers (roofers, Mechanical contractors, Pool Contractors, and Electrical contracts in all states) we can train in both sales and installation. We need Architects, Specifiers, Engineers who want to learn about our cutting edge technologies and how we can keep your design and still go green. We are also looking for Sheet Metal shops in stratiegic locations to become Lisenced manufactures under our Patent. If you are interusted in taking advantage of the growing Solar Thermal market we would love to train you on our products and the many benifits Sol-Ice can provide please contact us on Sol-Ice.com, Twitter or Facebook.

Sol-Ice Featured in an Article in The Park Record.

Chris Piper and I meet with Andrew from the Park Record a few weeks ago up at the Montage Deer Valley for an interview about the SubDynoMelt system on the Montage. It came out in yesterdays paper in and article called Ugly Cables and Roofing Aren’t Necessary

Just incase the article gets placed in the electronic archives I have copied it here for future refernce.

Ugly cables and roofing aren’t necessary

Sol-Ice Engineering prevents ice dams for a fraction of the monthly cost

by Andrew Kirk, OF THE RECORD STAFF

Posted: 01/04/2011 04:42:51 PM MST

Sol-Ice Engineering Systems, Inc. vice presidents Dennis Duce and Chris Piper show off Sol-Ice…

Dennis Duce has been roofing in the Park City area for over 15 years. In that time he’s seen a lot of ice dams and says he’s come to really understand their “anatomy.” Having a perfect understanding of what causes them, he invented a new method of prevention.

The SubDynoMelt and its sister product SubHydroMelt go underneath roof shingles instead of on top of them. This allows for more effective and energy-efficient melting along the eaves without damaging esthetics, he explained.

Unable to develop the product on his own, Duce partnered with his employer, Nielco Roofing. He is the vice president of sales and marketing for the new company, Sol-Ice Engineered Systems. Nielco is an installer of the products, as are a few other local companies, Duce explained.

SubDynoMelt uses 38 percent less electricity than its competitors on the surface of the room. Even better, he said, that amount of energy also prevents ice on five times the surface area.

Another way to explain it, he said, is that his product heats one foot of roof for 35 watts. Heat cables use 48 watts to heat nine inches.

The SubHydroMelt if connected to a home’s boiler is 90 percent more efficient than its sister product. It is uses one-tenth the electricity of its competitors, he said.

Thermal imaging also reveals both products dispense a more even layer of heat on a roof than competitors, he added.

Duce met the vice president of business development, Chris Piper, while working with him on a project.

Piper was helping build the Montage Deer Valley and realized the plans for the roof would not prevent icicles or ice dams. He hired Nielco Roofing for help and was introduced to Duce. Even though the Sol-Ice products had only been used on one other Summit County structure at the time, Duce convinced the builders his product was the right way to go.

Piper and Duce said the product was the same or cheaper to install, cost less to operate and went under, not on, the roof.

“People weren’t happy with the status quo, but being invisible makes it a real seller,” Duce said.

The builders of the hotel were not interested in being a guinea pig, Piper said. Their acceptance of the Sol-Ice products speaks highly for its competitive edge. The products’ superior qualities are also what convinced him to join the company.

“I’ve seen a lot of properties with problems and I’ve done a lot of ‘bandages,’” Piper said. “Some products only go after icicles. I saw that while managing properties in the Sierras. We could take care of the icicles, but then in spring owners complained about it being wet behind the walls.”

The product is working wonderfully at Montage, and Sol-Ice products have been installed in several more structures since, Duce explained.

More products are under development, he added. Although SubDynoMelt generates heat, the SubHydroMelt disperses it. Temperature dispersal technology can give many benefits to a home, he said. One of the most exciting innovations is solar thermal siding. It was used in one of the 2010 Showcase of Homes exhibits.

Local Architect Hirers Sol-Ice AI (Authorized Installer) to install both SubHydroMelt and SubSolarThermal

We have been asked by Richard Brighton owner and lead Architect at Brighton Architectural Group to resolve his massive ice dam problems. Ric has a corrugated Corten (R) roof that has four faces of the roof converging into one small area on the north side of his home. It has resulted in Ice build up that he could not get handled with zig-zaged heat cable. He has contracted with Nielco Roofing and Sheet Metal (Park City AI for Sol-Ice) to install the SubHydroMelt system to resolve the problem. Ric is a forward thinking Architect that wants to be able to help his clients embrace cutting edge technologies. He has decided that while he is doing all of this roof work he will also install on one large south face of his roof our SubSolarThermal system to help heat his house in the winter and help cool it in the summer.

This is an example of the type of roof Richard Brighton has on his house.

“I really belive in the products you have created and want to help my clients realize the benifits of these products. I can’t really do that with out using them myself” Ric said when we started looking at his project. That is the reason he has decided to have them installed so that he can test them out on his house and see how well they work.

Sol-Ice is proud to have this opportunity to show one of Park City’s well established architects how wonderful our products are right in his own back yard. Ric this is going to be one great ICE DAMN FREE year for you!
