Solar collectors offer an opportunity to provide hot water for kitchens, large shower facilities (such as locker rooms), and industrial applications. Also, solar collectors can be utilized to provide hot water for space heating via in-slab heating tubes, or other methods.
RN&M also utilizes photovoltaic systems. Photovoltaic panels capture the energy of the sun, which is converted to electric power. The power generated can be used to power loads directly (such as bus canopy lights, golf cart charging areas, etc.), or tied to the grid directly to reduce electrical energy consumption.
