This invention relates to means for absorbing solar energy and heating a fluid by the absorbed energy. One object of my invention is to provide apparatus by which a fluid thus heated may be discharged from the apparatus at a definite and predetermined temperature. Other objects of the invention are the provision of means for increasing the rate of circulation of a heat-conducting liquid in the apparatus, and means for automatically preventing the cooling of the apparatus by the passage of clouds over the face of the sun.
