Yes.  That is pretty much what I am talking about -- but it seems the "Electricity Only" thing that Saul Griffith (etc.) are promoting do not even understand how well and how cheap these are?

Philip, You may recall that 4-tracker install near Glen Rose back in 2006 you worked on with me. The owner put 2 solar DHW panels on the greenhouse adjacent to the inverter room for a radiant heat floor of the green house side. There was plenty of heat but being south-facing the system was hardly run at all. It was a drainback system but the fluid eventually broke down like they tend to do over time when they overheat. Otherwise it  did keep the room warm and steamy.....Jim
