When the sun is shining, TECU® Solar System, with its direct heat transmission technology, reaches peak temperature in a short time, with fast system activation and prompt delivery to the system of enough heat to meet daily requirements.
The peak power, tested and certified by ICIM, is 760 W/m2, as compared with a mean value of 700-750 W/m2 for flat glass collectors. The integration of the collector into the roof covering thus makes it possible to create a zero visual impact capture surface with unbeatable efficiency and excellent tax benefits.
The TECU® Solar System collector is certified with the Solar Keymark (*). The Solar Keymark is a quality mark for thermal products in Europe, based on European standards and certified by CEN. It guarantees, for the consumer, that a solar system complies with European standards governing quality and product information. This enables the owner to exploit the tax incentives established in the major European countries. In Italy, for example, the client can detract 55% of the total costs of installation and materials for the portion of roof housing the collector.
(*) ICIM certificate of conformity to UNI EN 12975-1:2006 e UNI EN 12975-2:2006 – Specific CEN Keymark Scheme Rules for Solar Thermal Products – ICIM 70R032
TECU® products have also obtained the Product Environmental Declaration in conformity with ISO 14025 from Institut Bauen und Umwelt e.V. (EPD-KME-2007311-IT), which supports the development of health and environmental sustainability in buildings.
TECU® Solar System has also enabled KME Italy to receive the “Environmentally friendly innovation award” 2009, sponsored by Legambiente and the Regione Lombardia.
