Solar Hot Water in affordable housing

Hey solarDwellers:

Good to see the economic and environmental advantages of renewable energy being brought into the reach of lower income levels. It doesn't only have to be for the well-off, especially solar hot water, which is less expensive.

Take a look at this article, which includes a local T.V. report(video) about how solar hot water is working in an affordable housing program in Colorado.

Has anyone heard of a fresnel lens that will focus into a row instead of a small spot? With such a lens one could build a solar water heater, say 2'X8' that would focus the energy to 1'X8'. And work much like a solar trough. Without the hassles of focus. Effectively creating double the energy to the 1'X8' surface.
