Solar Energy School Heating Augmentation Experiment. Design, Construction and Initial Operation. A Report.
InterTechnology Corp., Warrenton, VA.
This report describes an experimental solar heating system, complete with thermal storage and controls, that has met all the heating requirements of five detached classrooms of the Fauquier High School in Warrenton, Virginia. The objectives of the experiment were to (1) demonstrate that solar energy can be used to provide a substantial part of the energy requirements of a public school, (2) determine the fuel/energy savings from the use of this system, (3) provide a sound economic basis for projecting costs and cost/benefits from the use of solar energy, and (4) determine figures for performance, and the maintenance and operational costs of the system. Figures and text fully present the specifications of the system. (Author/MLF)
