Sunlight is mostly helium, that has combusted on the sun, giving
helium oxide. You split the helium nucleus into to hydrogen nuclei,
and recombine with the original oxygen. That's what those tubes in
the picture are for. And that makes water.
This process is not difficult, with the proper subatomic catalyst, the
composition of which is proprietary information. (I happen to know it,
but I'm not going to post it here.)
Sometimes electrons are lost in the process, but replacements are
available from the National Electron Reserve Fund. People who wish to
participate in NERF must register. There is a 10 dollar fee per year.
Or one can accept the loss of some water. According to NERF research,
it's less than 1% of maximum output.

Good points. I don't know what standards NERF uses for its electrons.
I don't where they get them either. Perhaps electron mines in Nevada.
But possibly they collect them from children's Van de Graf generators.
I think in California the Dept. of Sanitation does this when it
collects other recycling.
As to the bulk of electrons that come from the sun as part of the
helium oxide, I think they are pretty lean by the time they get here,
but you're right, the taste may have been dissipated in the 500
seconds it takes to arrive. The ether between here and the sun is
very taste-deficient, and probably absorbs most of the taste in things
that pass through it.
See the Journal of Inter-Planetary Science, "Composition of ether
within 100 million miles of the sun.", Jan. 15, 2001. I don't think
the JIPS before 2004 is online.
I am a bit concerned with what the giant European atom smasher may
do the the planet's natural electron population. The genetically
engineered electrons will pollute and alter the characteristics of
native electron species to a point that they will no longer be
recognizable. It will destroy diversity making the electron population
more susceptible to one disease like the positron virus which has
wiped out whole populations of electrons.
Gee whiz. We have something similar but it's still frozen; if not
frozen solid it has ice in its passages somewhere!
Maybe by May 15th will be warm enough to thaw out. Because we
occasionally get snow on May 24th, a local holiday.
But then if we get an early frost in say
And of course in any cloudy but warmer weather we DO get during the
days in summer, not sure if the hot water it produces would be
worthwhile. One estimate of our total hot water electricity
consumption is not more than 10% of total bill or a maximum of $300
per year! In other words we heat hot water pretty much as we use it at
ten cents per kilowatt hour for hydro generated power.
