DIY Solar Water Heater. A Homemade “flat panel” COPPER COIL Solar Water Heater. Easy DIY. Full Instructions. super hot temps (sustained at 165F+). fast hot water. no electricity needed. easily hooks up to standard water tap/garden hose. reaches temps well over 150F (water pasteurization temp) so it works to clear/kill any pathogens (if a non-municipal source is used). it’s super portable so it’s good for camping/off-grid/emergency as well as everyday use. couple of notes: water flow rate verified with a measuring cup and a stopwatch. (roughly 1 oz. of hot water every 1 to 1.5 seconds and scaled up – one gallon every 2-3 minutes or 20-30 gallons per hour). about the copper tubing: a 50 foot roll of tubing is much cheaper than smaller rolls connected. *only $24.95 for 50 ft (but $17 for a 20 ft roll and $10 for a 10 ft roll). the glass is just standard window glass and the paint is flat black. it’s thin flat design allows it to be easily stored in a closet, under the bed etc… *”seal it” according to your climate conditions and whether you plan to leave it outside.
UPDATE: (06/01/2018)… if interested, here’s a youtube video link to my other (most current) copper coil water heater. It’s of a similar design but is lined with aluminum sheeting and uses larger diameter coil.
Carbon Neutrality: myth or reality? Thanks to the use of Carbon Footprint assessments, Veolia is able to help its clients selecting carbon efficient and cost-effective solutions. This video demonstrates the benefits of Carbon Footprint optimization through two showcases: the use of green chemicals at Brussels Aquiris wastewater treatment plant and the biogas production allowing carbon neutrality at Schoellershammer Pulp & Paper factory in Germany.

Green energy is getting better and cheaper, yet we still largely rely on fossil fuels. Why haven’t we switched to solar and wind energy yet?

What Would Happen If We Burned All The Fossil Fuels On Earth?
“A new study published today in Science Advances finds that if we burn all of the remaining fossil fuels on Earth, almost all of the ice in Antarctica will melt, potentially causing sea levels to rise by as much as 200 feet–enough to drown most major cities in the world.”
Who’s Winning The Battle To Replace Coal?
“Coal is losing the battle for the electricity future in the United States. Investment in new coal-fired generating capacity has dried up with its share of electricity generation dropping from 53% in 2000 to 34% in 2015.”
Electricity in the United States
“In 2015, coal was used for about 33% of the 4 trillion kilowatthours of electricity generated in the United States. In addition to being burned to heat water for steam, natural gas can also be burned to produce hot combustion gases that pass directly through a natural gas turbine, spinning the turbine’s blades to generate electricity.”
