     Compare Savings as a Simple Result of Choosing a Lower Power Pump   .
    Power pump saved from low flow pump choice:    
       
    Extra collector area needed to make up for reduced efficiency:    
       
    Upfront cost of extra collector is say $50/m2 - so say in total:    
       
    Simulated power savings over 15 years after extra upfront collector costs:¥
