Solar Thermal Array

Lake Russian and Turkish Baths

Solar Thermal at the Steam Baths

The Lake Steam Baths at 3450 W Colfax recently completed installing a solar thermal array, with financing and contracting assistance from the BID.  Between the financing and savings on its gas bill, the Steam Baths will save $500 per month, and reduce annual carbon emissions by 16.1 metric tons, equivalent to taking 3 cars off the road. The owner Hannon Hymen calls the system “awesome” and is excited to be “going green”.
