Solaris Geothermal is a BC Company that is launching a highly acclaimed solar heating technology to change the way buildings are heated by making solar cost less than fossil fuels. For Designers, the company's disruptive technology is called SunPump, which is short for Solar Source Heat Pump that is a patented 3-part multi-source combination or Air Source, Ground Source, and Solar Source Heat pumps. This hybrid innovation allows SunPump to move energy from the most optimal heat source; air, ground, or solar; so it can operate all day, every day, in the winter, even in the dark. As the first solar heating system to operate 24/7, with CSA/UL certification and integrated backup heater, SunPump will experience exponential growth as it fills the void and demand for a primary, stand-alone heating system based solely on cost. The fact that SunPump is renewable energy is secondary, it will compete on par or less than the cost of incumbent fossil fuels and electric heating, and less than half the cost of comparable renewable Geothermal or Solar PV. SNNLive spoke with Bruce Gray, CEO of Solaris Geothermal Inc. at the Canadian Investor Conference 2014 in Vancouver, BC.
“We make solar heating equipment and our breakthrough is a business model that allows us to supply that equipment without any capital cost,” begins Mr. Gray. He continues, “We start off with the PV panel that’s able to produce electricity, but then we run refrigerant through the back of the panel and we turn it into a geothermal heat pump that’s on the roof.”
Mr. Gray explains, “Like a geothermal heat pump that wouldn’t know whether it’s day or night because it’s underground, our panels on the roof can still operate at night. They work on a temperature differential, so as long as the temperature is about -50 Celsius, it boils our fluid and we get energy from that.” He adds, “It’s so efficient, being able to work day and night, that it’s also able to be a replacement for an electric boiler or a gas furnace and that gives us the ability to put it into a building as a clean energy alternative for any other type of mechanical system.” For more information, check out their website at www.solar-hot-water.ca.
