How Do SunMaxx Evacuated Tubes Compare To Their Competitors?
SunMaxx’s ThermoPower evacuated tube solar collectors outperform the industry’s other leading brands in independent testing conducted by the SRCC (Solar Rating & Certification Corporation):

- Apricus 30 Tube – 40.6 kBTU/day
- Solar Panels Plus 30 Tube – 42.8 kBTU/day
This is a pretty common question, and there are a couple of considerations to take into account when making your choice. First, what is your temperature demand? Evacuated tubes will outperform flat plate collectors at higher temperatures. Second, what is the climate like at your location? While flat plate collectors deliver more value in warmer (southern) climates, evacuated tubes will generally be a better choice in colder (northern) climates.
