Solar Heating & Cooling Case Study - Larkspur Commons

Share

Larkspur Commons has 136 units ranging from 1-3  bedrooms that are rented out to families earning less than 50-60% of the area’s median income. To help keep  utility costs low, the development features a 4,000 square foot   solar hot water system comprised of 16 solar thermal systems (the largest in the state of Montana!) using SunEarth EC-40 Collectors, each with 216 gallons of storage and installed by our friends at Liquid Solar Systems. At present, the system is meeting 60% to 75% of annual hot water load.
