Empowering Western NC and Upstate SC with Solar Since 1995


This six collector solar thermal system was designed to supply up to 20% of the hot water for use in the Asheville Mellow Mushroom restaurant location and can be expanded easily in the future. As hot water is used continuously throughout the day, only one storage tank was called for.

Solar Hot Water

According to Gerry McHone and Carl McCloy, co-owners of the popular franchise, the decision to install the solar thermal system was easy as they could see nothing but benefit to the business, and felt that it would greatly add to the sustainability of their operations over the long haul. This solar hot water installation also fits in with the company’s overall philosophy of pursuing environmentally conscious policies wherever possible. Mellow Mushroom understands the power of renewable energy, recycling, and other “green” business practices.

A cost-benefit analysis of this solar hot water system shows a fairly quick payback through fuel savings, but it is the immeasurable “fringe-benefits” that this system offers that will make a difference into the future. Sundance Power Systems is proud to be the installer of several solar hot water systems throughout the region, with many such systems installed in Asheville, North Carolina. Each of these systems moves our community towards a more sustainable future with greater adoption of renewable energy systems. Whether it is solar hot water, solar electric or radiant heating, Sundance Power Systems has the experience and expertise to design and install high-quality renewable energy systems and build towards that greener and more sustainable future!
