Solar Climax

1 Apr

A renewable energy historical tidbit that probably amuses only me …

In 1891, a Baltimore inventor made the first commercial solar water heater in the U.S. He called it the “Climax.” He later came out with a new version called the “Improved Climax.”

Chances are we’re not going to see a solar energy product with that name again.
