Zane Solar Pool Heating marks 50 years in business on World Sun Day

May 7th, 2024

Zane Solar Pool Heating is commemorating its 50th anniversary this year, marking a significant milestone in providing solar pool heating solutions in the region.

It’s celebrations symbolically began on World Sun Day, May 3.

Starting in 1974 selling its Gulfstream system in Sydney with a handful of installers, the company now has a nationwide dealer network comprising 36 solar professionals installing and servicing hundreds of Zane solar pool heating installations each year.

Zane solar and heating manager Adam Shelley says that long before the terms ‘carbon footprint’ and ‘eco-friendly’ became commonplace, Zane was harnessing the natural energy of the sun so homeowners could extend their swimming season without harming the environment.

Pioneering the solar energy movement during the 1970s energy crisis, Zane initially focused on solar pool heating, a novel concept at the time, supported by Waterco’s early commitment to sustainability.

“It only took four years for Zane to reach international acclaim when, in 1978, it received an Australian Design Award,” says Shelley. “The following year, it was selected as a finalist for the prestigious Prince Phillip Design Award.”

Starting in 1994 to shine the spotlight on renewable energy resources, World Sun Day serves as a reminder of the immense potential of solar power in building a more environmentally friendly and sustainable future for generations to come.

Zane Solar Pool Heating is a subsidiary of Waterco Limited.
