Alternate Energy, Inc., to Distribute Apricus™ Products Throughout New England

The high performance solar collector is combined with a unique operating system that has been proven over a thirty-year period. The system eliminates costly heat exchangers and transfer fluids, as well as associated maintenance.

Boston, MA (PRWEB) March 3, 2022 -- Alternate Energy, Inc. unveils revolutionary thermal collector technology products from Apricus™ in the middle of winter! When asked about how winter in Massachusetts would affect them, Steve Pitney, Owner/Operator of Alternate Energy, Inc., said “These don’t need hot summer sun to heat water. They can perform even on cold winter days. Moreover, we can use this heat energy for hot water applications like showers, clothes-washers, baths, dishwashers, and even space heating, and air-conditioning.”

The high performance solar collector is combined with a unique operating system that has been proven over a thirty-year period. The system eliminates costly heat exchangers and transfer fluids, as well as associated maintenance. “The combination is unbeatable.” states Pitney.

These will be featured at Building Energy 05, The Conference and Trade Show for Green and Renewable Energy Professionals, Seaport World Trade Center, Boston, MA March 15-17, 2005.

When asked about the technology Mr. Pitney enthusiastically added, “This is light years ahead of anything previously used in the industry. Apricus™ systems perform at a much higher level, and eliminate the need for an internal heat exchanger. This product is revolutionizing the solar hot water industry. They’re tubes… they’re round! This means they perform much better- even in cold weather- than flat panels do because of the way sunlight hits them. Besides that, flat panels just lose a lot of heat.”

The sun's energy is absorbed and converted to heat by vacuum tubes (collectors) like the one in your coffee thermos. It’s actually a tube within a tube. The tops of the two tubes are bonded together and the air is removed to form a vacuum between them. The outer wall of the tube is made of very strong, transparent, impact-resistant glass. The inner tube (also glass) is specially coated to absorb solar heat while minimizing heat reflection. Heat is trapped in the inner tube because a vacuum is a very effective insulator. It’s so effective that, while the inside of the tube may be 300 degrees Fahrenheit, the outer tube is cold to touch.

According to Mr. Pitney, inside the [inner] glass tube is a copper [heat] pipe that has had the air removed but has a little purified water put in. Because water boiling temperatures decrease as the air pressure is decreased, the heat pipes used in vacuum tube solar collectors have a boiling point of about 86 degrees Fahrenheit (Normally water boils at 212 degrees Fahrenheit.). When the pipe is heated above the eighty-six degree temperature, the water boils [and vaporizes] to the top of the pipe. From there the heat is transferred to a manifold [through which water flows and is thereby heated]. As the heat is lost at the top of the pipe (the condenser), the vapor condenses back to water, returns to the bottom of the heat pipe and, as long as rays from the sun are absorbed and converted to heat by the tube, the process continues repeatedly. With a curved surface, the collectors consistently convert solar energy into heat (until the sun is at a 40-degree angle).

“Let the Sun Shine” - Alternative Energy Store

“Let the Sun Shine” - Alternative Energy Store, Based in Worcester, Named Exclusive US Distributor of Solar Max, Residential Solar Air Heating System
Alternative Energy Store, the largest provider of renewable energy products, and Cansolair Inc. of Newfoundland, Canada have entered into a multi-year agreement making the Alternative Energy Store the exclusive United States distributor of the Solar Max 240

Worcester, MA (PRWEB) February 18, 2022 -- Alternative Energy Store, the largest provider of renewable energy products, and Cansolair Inc. of Newfoundland, Canada have entered into a multi-year agreement making the Alternative Energy Store the exclusive United States distributor of the Solar Max 240. Catering to customers around the globe via their online store (AltEnergyStore.com) and catalog, the Alternative Energy Store is headquartered in Worcester, Mass.

With increasing heating fuel costs, homeowners may reap the benefits of energy savings simply by installing the Solar Max system. Overall fuel cost savings range from 25 to 50 percent depending upon current fuel source and the amount of sunlight received at the location. The Solar Max is one of the few solar air heating systems designed for residential use available in North America.

“We’re particularly excited to offer this cost effective solar heating system to our customers and dealers across the US. This system has a very short payback period of 3 to 6 years for most homeowners. After that the heat that it produces is essentially free,” said Sascha Deri, President of the Alternative Energy Store. He continued, “With increased instability in fuel oil and natural gas prices along with the extraordinary high cost of heating with electricity, this system offers an easy and non-polluting way to reduce heating bills.”

The easy-to-install Solar Max system is mounted on a south facing wall or on the roof. It circulates air from inside the home through its highly efficient heat collector. The solar air heating system uses temperature sensors to gauge its automatic operation.

“Residents in Massachusetts will also enjoy the added financial benefit that the purchase of a solar air heating system is tax free, a little known advantage of Massachusetts tax law,” noted Deri.

Progressive Investor Releases Report, "Investing in Solar Energy"

Progressive Investor announces the release of its report, "Investing in Solar Photovoltaics: a Market at the Tipping Point." 2004 may well be remembered as the watershed year for solar energy.

New York (PRWEB) February 16, 2022 -- Progressive Investor announces the release of its report, "Investing in Solar Photovoltaics: a Market at the Tipping Point."

2004 may well be remembered as the watershed year for solar energy. It's been a long time coming, but in this 50th anniversary of the solar cell, the industry is showing clear signs it is indeed at the tipping point toward mass commercialization.

Experts say the solar PV market will grow from the current US$7 billion to US$30 billion in 2010. With annual growth rates exceeding 30%, and expanding profit margins, solar PV is in transition to becoming one of the world's fast-growth, profitable industries.

2004 was the year the industry really took off. Together, the world's 24 publicly traded solar companies saw their shares jump by almost 185%. Customer demand is so high that solar manufacturers are completely sold out and are ramping up to meet demand.

2005 portends to be even a bigger year, with over 20 IPOs in the works. The sector will be much bigger with many new players, and with existing players practically all reaching profitability.

The companies our analysts favor for investors are Japan's Sharp (6753 JP), Kyocera (6753JP),and Tokuyama (4043JP), Germany's SolarWorld (SWVG.BE) and Q-Cells (a much anticipated 2005 IPO), and Evergreen Solar (ELSR) in the U.S.

"Until recently, few analysts followed this industry. Now, especially because Sharp is investing so heavily in the field - with an impressive annual growth rate of 63% and with solar contributing to about 15% of operating profit by the end of next year - they are incorporating solar into their financial models. Institutional investors are also showing great interest," notes Rona Fried, Editor.

Says, Michael Rogol, a solar analyst with CSLA Asia Pacific, The company I'm most excited about is Q-Cells. It has the potential to be the Netscape of the solar sector. When Netscape went public in 1994 it started the Internet stock boom."

This report is a succinct overview of the industry, the investing landscape, and the main players.

The sections are:
* The Solar PV Landscape
* The Solar Investment Landscape
* The Major Solar Players
* Meet the German Pure Play Favorites: SolarWorld & Q-Cells
* Meet the U.S. Pure Play Favorite: Evergreen Solar
* Meet Canada's Pure Play Favorite: Carmanah Technologies

Doe Run Peru Helps Bring Electricity to Padre Cocha, Peru

Solar power and lead-acid batteries provide residents with basic utilities.

St. Louis, MO (PRWEB via PR Web Direct) February 4, 2022 -– Doe Run Peru, a subsidiary of The Doe Run Company, is helping to develop a low-cost and environmentally friendly technology designed to support the sustainable development of isolated communities, providing essential, affordable electricity. Alongside the International Lead Zinc Research Organization (ILZRO) and the Common Fund for Commodities, Doe Run Peru has sponsored the pilot project in Padre Cocha, Peru, since its inception in 1997. The project uses a hybrid of solar power and lead-acid batteries to provide the region with an economic and eco-friendly source of energy.

“In a country like Peru, thousands of communities are lacking electricity. This technology can support basic services that are often taken for granted, including lighting for hospitals, refrigeration of medication and food, as well as improvements to sewage systems and the water supply,” explained Bruce Neil, president of Doe Run Peru.

Doe Run Peru operates a metals processing facility in La Oroya, in the Peruvian Andes, and the Cobriza copper mine in southern Peru.

At an international workshop held in November, the participants focused on the new technology, as well as its implications for the sustainable development of rural towns like Padre Cocha, which is located in the Peruvian Amazon. The community, which currently relies on expensive and environmentally unfriendly diesel generators to provide limited electricity, lacks proper equipment to provide continuous nighttime lighting and daytime power.

In his keynote address at the workshop, Neil stressed the empowering benefits of this technology. “We are hopeful that this project will serve as a model to promote health and economic benefits across Peru and in other impoverished communities around the globe.”

The Doe Run Company, along with its subsidiaries, is a privately held natural resource company focused on environmentally sound mineral production, recycling and metals fabrication. Based in St. Louis, the company and its subsidiaries serve as North America’s largest integrated lead producer and third-largest total lead producer worldwide, employing more than 4,000 people. The company and its employees are committed to keeping its operations and communities clean and safe while producing essential raw materials – lead, zinc, copper, gold and silver – that are needed for everyday life. Doe Run and its subsidiaries have U.S. operations in Missouri, Washington and Arizona, and in South America in Peru. Find Doe Run on the Web at http://www.doerun.com.
