Our Sunstream C range is for customers who prefer copper flat plate collectors for heating water. These collectors use thin copper tubes, inside a robust collector with toughened glass. Some of our customers like them because it means that if a monkey comes and sits on the collector, it won’t break!
Sunstream C is the technology on which the Indian solar water heater market was first built, prior to the emergence of evacuated glass tubes as a less costly alternative. It is a durable, tried and tested product.
Sunstream C belongs to the family of Sunstream systems that use copper tubes to heat water inside of a collector covered with toughened glass. It also comes with a durable stainless steel tank that is 0.8 mm thick.
Compared to using electricity to heat water, these systems save customers money. For example, in parts of India with roughly 330 sunny days a year, the average daily cost of a Sunstream system using a copper flat plate collector is approximately Rs. 15. The average daily cost of an electric geyser is almost 50% more – Rs. 21.5.
The customer can also opt for a back-up coil to be inserted in their Sunstream C system for hot water even during extended cloudy weather.
