SAN FRANCISCO, Oct. 12 /PRNewswire/ -- Schuco Solar USA has seen steady market share growth in the solar thermal market. In response to dealer requests and wanting to stay ahead of the competition with premium products, Schuco is introducing its next generation residential and commercial thermal collectors.

The new collectors have major contributions in three key areas: price, aesthetics and more efficient technology.  Schuco is able to provide these contributions because, unlike most thermal vendors, Schuco designs and manufactures the collectors.  This increases its ability to introduce new technology, control quality and pass savings to the end customer.

The Advance Series and the Performance Series Collectors are significantly lower in cost than their predecessor; the Performance Series alone has over one-third cost savings.   Both use the new absorber bonding technology that now replaces the old style of soldering.  This new technology allows for better heat transfers and, along with other improvements, allows for a smaller and lighter collector.  The new modules will carry Schuco's standard warranty.
