Case Study: Solar Water Heating at Great Basin Bakery in Bishop, California


Project Overview

Great Basin Bakery, an iconic establishment in Bishop, California, is known for its commitment to quality and expansion. In line with their dedication to environmental responsibility, the bakery has taken a sustainable step by incorporating a cutting-edge domestic hot water solar system. This eco-friendly transformation was facilitated by the expertise of Ian Dews Plumbing.

The newly integrated solar water heating system has been seamlessly incorporated into the bakery's operations, strategically situated in the Bishop Plaza shopping center. The system comprises 4 - 4’ x 8’ SunEarth Solar collectors, strategically facing south at a 60-degree tilt, complemented by 2 SunEarth 80-gallon storage tanks. Notably, the system operates using a drain-back configuration, ensuring optimal efficiency by only containing fluid when actively operating. During inactive periods, the fluid safely drains back into a dedicated 15-gallon tank.
