Copper’s excellent corrosion resistance is an important reason for its choice in so many applications.Use of copper plays an important role in Solar energy systems.

For example :

  • copper’s resistance to both atmospheric and aqueous corrosion.
  • copper’s superior thermal conductivity. Hence thinner copper sheet s can collect the same heat as a much thicker-gauge sheet of aluminum or steel. And it means that copper collector tubes can be more widely spaced.
