Solar collectors trap the sun's energy and use it to heat the water you need for your property. System size typically depends on the amount of hot water used (per person basis). Solar thermal applications can heat up to 80% of the hot water needs for a property.
EnerWorks, Inc. is one of North America’s leading solar thermal technology providers. They deliver proven, patented technology that offers high quality, reliable, cost-effective renewable energy solutions. EnerWorks develops and manufactures proprietary renewable energy appliances for residential and commercial markets. The products are the world’s first in-home renewable energy products that supply energy to the user for less than the cost of grid energies (electricity, gas, propane or oil). Enerworks is the first solar thermal product to receive an EnergyStar rating, and is a top-rated collector certified by the SRCC.
The EnerWorks residential solar water heating appliance is a clean, cost effective solution that uses the sun’s energy to heat your water.

EnerWorks is North America’s leading solar technology provider. Its proven, patented technology offers a reliable all-season solar appliance that will improve your home’s energy efficiency without compromising comfort.
EnerWorks one to four collector panel systems were the 1st solar thermal systems that are CSA approved. With this certification, inspector approvals and applications for incentives and rebates are greatly simplified as is the homeowner’s ability to obtain the appropriate insurance after the installation is complete. Through the SRCC, the panels have earned OG100 certification, while the system has received OG300 certification.
The process is relatively simple: the sun’s energy is harnessed through solar collector panels, transferred through a heat exchanger to a storage tank, and then available to provide hot water for washing, cooking, and radiant and space heating. Your existing hot water heater provides an auxiliary heating source, with the renewable solar heated water meeting the primary demand, and providing a significant annual energy savings. The appliances do not affect the quality of hot water produced nor the speed at which the water is heated. They do offer a long operational life, minimal maintenance and an affordable alternative to rising energy costs.
