Solar Water Heating Specification, Checklist and Guide (2011)
This manual is the Renewable Energy Ready Home (RERH) specifications for solar thermal domestic water heating. They were developed and published by the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to assist building in designing and constructing homes that are renewable energy friendly.
The manual begins with a one page checklist for builders to use on site when construction RERH homes. Site assessments and structural safety considerations are the first topics covered, which should be undertaken before the installation of a solar water heating system. The manual then tackles specifications concerning the size and location of a specific room for the solar water heating system and what kind of valves etc. should be located within the room.
