Abstract

This report contains a proposal and an evaluation of a solar water heating design for the University of Redlands campus. The evaluation is based primarily on economic considerations. It is shown that solar water heating is economically attractive as well as technically feasible.

The evaluation method used is the F-chart method. This method optimizes system size based on life-cycle cost analysis.

It is recommended that the University install solar water heating in one dormitory, North Hall. An identical dormitory, Merriam Hall, should be utilized as a control. A solar pool heating system is also recommended for the gymnasium.
