Do-it-yourself solar collectors for heating water have been installed on ten houses in Hostětín since July 1997, as outcomes of the programme "Sun for the White Carpathians", which included a workshop for installation of simple modular solar systems.
Annual energy savings amount to approx. 2 000 kWh per one device. In total, 35 systems were installed on public and private buildings in the Landscape Protected Area.
TiNOX placed a large solar collector (36 m2) using the most modern technology on the roof of the juicing plant, and with this the village of Hostětín has one of the largest surface areas of solar collector’s per inhabitant in the Czech Republic.
