Forsyth County Animal Control Solar Thermal Project
Completed in 2011 by Baker Renewable Energy, the Forsyth County Animal Control Solar
Thermal Project will reduce fuel costs and greenhouse gas emissions associated with
the production of hot water at the facility. Before the project the Animal Shelter’s
primary source of hot water was two gas fired boilers. During sunny days the solar
thermal system will be the primary producer for the facility’s hot water demand.
The system consists of ten collectors located on the roof of the facility and a
solar water heater integrated into the existing domestic hot water supply.

the production for the day, week, or month. At the bottom of the window is a comparison
showing the equivalent savings of coal, carbon dioxide, or miles driven through
the use of the solar thermal system over the time period specified.
