Updated Publication: Construction of solar collectors for warm water

Updated Russian version of the solar collector manual is now available


The updated version of the manual on construction of solar collectors is available now in Russian.

This manual  presents a low-cost, highly efficient solar collector model, developed by WECF and its partners. Many types of solar water heating systems exist. The model shown has been proven to work in climates with cold winters.
Here you can find full instructions for how to build and install a solar collector for using energy from the sun to provide hot water for your home, using  materials available from local markets. This solar collector functions all year  round, including winter, without the need for electricity.
