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

This manual presents a low-cost, highly efficient solar collector model, developed by WECF and its partners. It is a practical guide with step by step instructions on how to build and install a solar collector, using materials available from the local market.

The publication has been produced as part of the project „Building local capacity for domestic solar heating, hot water and insulation for rural and remote areas in the EEC region”, funded by the European Union, and is also supported by Donald Kuenen Foundation for the advancement of environmental expertise in Central and Eastern Europe, and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Netherlands.
