Sun related Facts about Solar Energy:

Sunlight travels to the earth in approximately 8 minutes from 93,000,000 miles away, at 186,282 miles per second.

The sun is also the main source of non-renewable fossil fuels (coal, gas and petroleum), which began life as plants or animals whose energy came from the sun millions of year ago.

Solar energy is responsible for weather patterns and ocean currents.

Clouds, pollution and wind can prevent the sun's rays from reaching the earth.

xFacts about Solar Energy usage:

Solar Energy is measured in kilowatt-hour. 1 kilowatt = 1000 watts.

1 kilowatt-hour (kWh) = the amount of electricity required to burn a 100 watt light bulb for 10 hours.

According to the US Department of Energy, an average American household used approximately 866-kilowatt hours per month in 1999 costing them $70.68.

About 30% of our total energy consumption is used to heat water.

Residential Solar Hot Water



Today, harnessing energy from the sun to produce hot water is easier than ever. Alien Fuel offers systems that use solar energy to heat your water easily and efficiently. Government agencies also offer rebates, making solar hot water systems affordable for everyone.

Solar hot water systems are extremely efficient, providing up to 80% of a home's annual hot water needs. Also, solar hot water isn't just for personal use anymore. Alien Fuel offers systems for radiant floor heating, pool heating, and through advanced technologies, even cool air for air conditioning.

Solar hot water has proven that it's efficient and reliable. In fact, solar hot water has been used in different ways for hundreds of years. Today, solar hot water technologies have evolved into systems that perform extremely well in all climates. The U.S. Department of Energy estimates that over 1 million U.S. homes have had a solar hot water system installed

How does it work? A solar hot water system is quite simple. You're using the sun's energy to heat a solar collector full of solar fluid (or water, depending on which type of system you install), which then transfers that heat (or hot water) into your home's hot water tank.


(1) When there is sufficient heat to be drawn from the collectors, a controller automatically activates pumps. (2) Heated solar fluid is then circulated from the collector, (3) through a heat exchanger where its heat is transferred to (4) water in the storage tank. (5) The solar fluid is then pumped back to the collector to once again be reheated. This circulation loop will continue as long as there is heat to be drawn from the collector. During times when there is little or no sun, a backup heating system will be activated to provide adequate hot water

Solar hot water systems function well in any climate, even regions with heavy snow or rain. There are different systems designed with several considerations, such as: where you live, the number of people in your household, and what the hot water will be used for.

As a homeowner, installing a solar hot water system is a wise choice, but with so many solar hot water companies to choose from, it can be difficult to differentiate one system from another. Value, quality design, are the reasons Alien Fuel installs Heliodyne solar hot water products.

Heliodyne develops and assemble every key component in-house. All products are built with the finest materials for high heat-transfer rates, increased efficiency, durability, and extended lifetime energy production. In fact, there are thousands of Heliodyne systems still running smoothly that were installed in the late 1970's - a true testament to their quality and lifespan
