Hot Water

(100 points)

The Solar Decathlon Hot Water contest demonstrates that solar hot water systems can supply all the hot water that households use daily.
Teams score points in this contest by successfully completing "shower tests" over four days of the competition. The goal during these tests is to deliver 15 gallons of hot water (110F/43.3C) in 10 minutes or less.
