Altus AFB 317 Solar Thermal

Altus Air Force Base Building 317 (Solar Inn) – Altus, Oklahoma


The Solar Inn needed replacement and upgrade of the solar thermal system that was first installed in the 1980’s. James Lane Mechanical served as the designer, engineer, and plumbing contractor for this project while working with the Corps of Engineers. JLM provided the design, load calculation to determine the appropriate number of panels needed, selected the storage tank and pumps and reconnected the system to the existing domestic hot water system. JLM was proud to restore solar thermal energy to the Solar Inn without disrupting operations of the facility.
