A solar collector gathers and stores the sun's energy via a network of pipes through which water or anti-freeze is heated. Flat plate collectors are the most common type; they consist of copper tubes fitted to a flat absorber plate. Evacuated tube collectors are more efficient, working best in cold, cloudy climates.

air collectors, pool collectors, flat plate collectors, evacuated tube collectors, collector circulation
