The effect of multiple glazing on the efficiency of the flat-plate solar collector has been investigated. The solar radiation data was obtained from the Nigeria Meteorological Agency (NIMET) in Calabar, Southern Nigeria. The data collated from the results of our measurements have been graphically analysed. The central issue was the variation of the computed efficiency with increasing number of glass glazings. The results show that, efficiency of the flat-plate solar collector deteriorates with introduction of multiple glazings as against a single glazing. Inherent heat losses have not been evaluated.
