Each of the five wedges of the Pentagon will be topped with 75.6-kW evacuated tube solar thermal systems. The combined total capacity of the 30 solar thermal systems will be 378-kW peak.

Maryland-based Thermo Technologies will furnish collectors, while Capital Sun Group Ltd. (Cabin John, Md.) will do the installation. Thermo Technologies is to monitor the systems’ performance for a period of two years from commissioning date.
