Solar Powered Car Wash in Toronto

While driving to a meeting in our dirty old '89 Miata, how could we pass this up- a solar hot bath at the Wash'N Go in west end Toronto. Installed earlier this year, it has two banks of ten collectors, each with sixteen evacuated tubes, from Solarco Manufacturing. A heat exchange system using propylene glycol keeps it from freezing up in winter, when we actually do stand out there in 20 below weather washing our cars- we would rather be in Kyeann's car wash in Southern California. Now if they can only figure out how to solar heat us while we do it. ::Wash'N Go
