KOA Solar Pool Heater Installations

Kamp Green logoIn 2010, KOA launched Kamp Green, which recognizes the voluntary efforts by KOA campground owners to incorporate more eco-friendly practices into their day-to-day operations. Some of the changes made at these KOAs include installing on-demand hot water heaters, using water conservation practices, using eco-friendly cleaning products, creating resource-friendly landscaping and switching to more efficient lighting. In the more recent months some of the KOAs have also installed solar panels and windmills to capture and store renewable energy.

By harnessing the power of the sun KOA offers heated swimming pools year-round while. reducing energy costs and reducing their carbon footprint. Solar Direct has installed solar pool heating systems on three locations this year: Okeechobee Park, Sugarloaf Key and St. Petersburg Florida.
