Sun Bandit Changed Solar Water Heating Forever

With over 30 years of industry experience, the innovators at Next Generation Energy are excited to announce that on Friday, May 15, 2015, Sun Bandit became the very first solar electric PV water heating collector in the world to be certified by the Solar Rating & Certification Corporation (SRCC). This milestone event represents a paradigm shift in the way solar energy is captured, stored and used to heat water that is now more dependable and affordable than ever before.


Sun Bandit Changes Everything You Know About Solar Water Heating

As you may know, SRCC is recognized by the solar industry as the standards development body for solar collectors and solar water heating systems. During the certification process, Sun Bandit’s patented micro-grid technology defined a new category for solar water heating and influenced the new OG-100 and OG-300 standards. This is the first time in industry history that a PV-based solar water heating system has received this certification.


What Sun Bandit Means To You And Your Customers

This certification validates Sun Bandit technology as the new standard in solar electric water heating and may provide customers with additional financial incentives when they install a Sun Bandit System with SRCC OG-100 Certified Collectors. To receive additional rebates for an SRCC OG-100 Collector, Sun Bandit systems must include a minimum of 4 solar PV modules from 280W to 310W certified to UL 1703 that meet Sun Bandit micro-inverter specifications. Sun Bandit SB and SBES 200, 400, 600 and 800 Series systems meet these requirements. Ease of installation, operation and maintenance are keys to Sun Bandit success.

Sun Bandit Is Now The "New Normal” In Solar Water Heating

The NEW solar revolution has begun and Sun Bandit is leading the way by creating whole new opportunities for those choosing to embrace it. Simple, clean and dependable, Sun Bandit makes widespread global adoption of solar an affordable reality for everyone.
