Proud distributors of the Apollo Solar Geyser in Pretoria and Johannesburg
Solar Guru Apollo Solar Geysers provides a great solution for energy saving. Modern science is finally demonstrating anthropogenic climate change to be a reality. Because we are experiencing rising temperatures and extreme weather on a previously unseen scale.
It is also estimated that we are currently exceeding the carrying capacity of our planet by 20% [WWF, 2002]. Therefore it is clear that action must be taken to not only limit the long term damage. And also reverse damages while ensuring that we live in a sustainable manner.
Sources of electricity determines the extent to which a SWH system contributes to atmospheric carbon during operation.
The term “carbon footprint” refers to the amount of carbon (C0₂) we emit individually in any one-year period. C0₂ is the primary gas responsible for Global Warming therefore resulting in alarming changes in our climate.
The average domestic SWH system reduces your carbon emissions by about 400kg per year.
The mitigation of carbon footprint through the development of alternative projects, such as Solar Energy, represents one way of reducing a carbon footprint and is often known as Carbon Offsetting.
Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) takes into account the total environmental cost of acquisition of raw materials, manufacturing, transport etc.
Some aspects of an LCA include:
Financial costs and gains incurred during the life cycle or equipment
In an increasingly carbon-constricted world, Solar Energy Technologies represent one of the least carbon-intensive means of electricity generation.
Solar power produces no emissions during generation and LCA clearly demonstrate that it has a smaller carbon footprint from “cradle-to-grave” than fossil fuels.
With clear market signals from Governments, these low-carbon technologies could provide 30% of the world’s energy supply in aggregate by 2040.
Apollo Solar Geysers
Installation of the Apollo Solar Geysers Technology system must only be performed by qualified personnel in accordance with all the provisions of current law, the recommendation of national standards, any local regulations and the rules of competent workmanship.
All work associated with the installation must comply with local authority regulations.
Don’t remove or disable any safety devices.
To reduce the risk of scald injury it is recommended that a temperature control valve be fitted to the hot water supply pipe work. This valve should be checked at regular intervals to ensure its operation and settings remain correct.
The water heater is not intended for use by young children or infirm persons without supervision.
Do not commence an installation until you have satisfied yourself that all safety issues associated with working on and lifting components onto a roof have been addressed.
Do not turn on the power supply until the solar water heater has been filled with water and pressurized.
Don’t fill the closed circuit system with any toxic mixture.
Apollo Solar Geysers saves the environment, energy and money.
