Solar Farm

The Nambour hospital solar array is used to preheat water for the boilers.  The reflectors magically track the sun's movement during the course of the day to keep all the heat concentrated on the pipe.

Terrific, sensible stuff!  I wonder if it's an economic proposition though?

There is only one way to find out the economics of it... and that is through use, and we 'the man in the street' benefit from this. :)
