Heliocol is the ONLY solar panel in the industry that does not require multiple 'hurricane straps' across the panel to hold the panel to the roof to meet the 2003 FLORIDA WIND LOADING CODE. All of Heliocol's mounting hardware is at the top and bottom of the solar panel ONLY and the mounting hardware is easily attachable to a truss or rafter.


A Heliocol solar system requires on average, 50%-60% fewer penetrations in your roof to attach the solar system...and it still withstands the highest winds in the industry! Heliocol is the most requested solar panel by insurance carriers for replacement of solar panels affected by high winds. In addition, Heliocol offers a flush, more aesthetically pleasing appearance. There are no unsightly gaps between the solar panels!

Free Heat Makes Cents!

You pay nothing to run your Heliocol system because your heat comes free from the sun! Other heating options such as gas or electricity can cost thousands of dollars to run every year. In fact, many pool owners who buy a gas or electric heater stop using the heater all together after discovering the high cost of system operation.
