Non-Tracking Collectors Are The Important Technological Options To Harness The Solar Thermal Energy At Temperature Below 100oc. Thermal Energy Below This Level Has Very Wide Applications In The Residential And Industrial Sectors. Also, Energy At This Level Can Be Used Indirectly To Produce Cooling, Configuration And Cost Were Considered And Their Energy Collection With Different Design, Configuration And Cost Were Considered And Their Energy Collection Capabilities Were Estimated Under The Ethiopian Conditions For Different Applications Identified With The Temperature. Based On The Manufactures’ Quotations And Other Economic Parameters, The Annual Amortized Cost Of Solar Collectors Were Estimated. These Values Were Used To Estimate The System Cost Per Unit Of Energy Generation. A Domestic Solar Water Heater With An Unglazed Collector Is The Only Solar System Having Economic Viability At Present. Evacuated Tube Collectors Stand A Good Chance Of Being Economically Viable In Future With Increase In Fuel Prices And/Or Reduction In System Cost
