KINGSTON —Tour Sanborn Regional High School’s solar hot air system with the USGBC and Mick Dunn of Shift Energy, LLC on Wed., October 9, from 7:30-9:00 a.m. at 17 Danville Road in Kingston. The high school installed 7,800 sf of wall mounted solar heating panels in 2011; the panels are divided into four separate wall systems. Two walls connect to large heat recovery units on the roof, with each wall providing solar heated fresh air for the school. The other two walls are on two separate gymnasiums. This site is a great example of multiple solar air heating systems in action, which have been integrated into the building in different ways. Come hear lessons learned and about how this system is performing! A tour of the site will be provided following the presentation.
The presenter: Mick Dunn is founder of Shift Energy, LLC out of Biddeford Maine. He is experienced with commercial and industrial solar heating design for both solar air and hot water. Shift Energy has been active in the design, sales and turnkey design-build of some of the largest solar thermal projects in the Northeast, many of which have been in NH.
