With the Tour Xolar wants to entice passers-by to give a little more thought to the topics of water heating and solar energy. To this end, a 600-litre wooden bath tub was set up. Solar collectors heated the water to around 50°C over a period of just four hours, while a PV-driven pump served to fill the tub. “The idea behind the tour is to show people how simply and reliably renewable energy functions. Through simple retrofitting, even an individual home-owner is able to make use of the sun for water heating and to generate his own electricity,” explains Michaela Altof, head of marketing at Xolar.
