Just a thought. Jim jogged my brain. You’d really need some sort of a heat sink for storage. Most folks who do solar heat, use big skylites, and windows and let the sun warm cement floors, walls etc. Stays warm over night….hopefully. Don’t know how you’d do it on a roof with out a large array of panels and copper piping to carry a liquid to storage tank. A lot of work, money and space.
