Invest in FAFCO

CoolPV® can deliver up to 4x the power of stand alone solar panels

Founded in 1969, FAFCO revived the nascent US solar thermal industry. Our first innovation replaced copper with engineered polymers in solar pool heating panels. Today, our goal is to transform the industry again. We introduced CoolPV in late 2015, a combination of solar thermal and solar electric technology which we believe will revolutionize the solar industry. After all, we’re no startup; we’ve been in business for forty years and in 2015, we generated over $6.9 million in revenue.

CoolPV has the potential to not only heat pools and water for homes, but also provide heated fluids in commercial and industrial applications. Our grand vision is to deliver as much renewable energy to customers as possible, providing affordable energy for the everyday tasks you don’t even think about: laundry, showers, food processing, and more.
