Solar Hot Water for the Ponderosa Lodge. This system uses 7 Collectors. Only five collectors shown in picture. This system has been operating for 5 years, it provides hot water to the 32 room lodge. In the summer months they turn there electric off and let the solar do all there water heating. We also installed a small battery system to run his barn. Here is a link to their website. They are very pleased with their system and plan to do more alternative energy in the future. http://ourmountainfarm.blogspot.com/
