I came across this guy a year ago. He has some interesting solar collectors in Ukraine. The climate seems northern and has snow.

Home owner near Minneapolis with cast iron radiators, one non working slant fin now ripped out, and hot water heat.

    Hardly redneck. :open_mouth: That setup looks pretty sophisticated.  May not have cost much material $ to built but I bet he had a bunch of labor into it. 
    He must be relatively well off, that’s a nice home and I’m not sure even Jed had a clay tennis court! 🤓

    Redneck was a compliment coming from me. ;-) I found it very clever. I recall one system of his had presets where he changed the angle of the trough every month. I liked the collectors at the focal point he designed.
