there are many benefits to solar hot water heating that make it a great energy choice.
 

Environmentally Beneficial?


  • Solar energy is an unlimited resource.
  • Solar energy does not produce harmful emissions or require transportation or pipelines like electric energy does.
  • Solar water heating systems installed in the U.S. help reduce our household energy consumption, and the nation's reliance on toxic fossil fuels.
  • Solar water heating systems will work anywhere in the U.S., not just sunny states.

Cost Effective Solution?

On average, if you install a solar water heater, your water heating bills should drop 50% - 80%. Also, because the sun is free, you're protected from future fuel shortages and price hikes. Other financial incentives include:

  • Anticipated payback period of 3 to 7 years.
  • Solar energy systems can take advantage of the sun's free energy year round.
  • Solar energy can be produced even at low temperatures.
  • Federal tax credits help pay 30% of the cost, up to $2,000 for the system. Many states and utilities offer additional support.
  • Between tax credits and energy savings, this system offers a faster return on your investment than other solar energy systems.
  • Lower first-time start up cost than solar photovoltaic (PV) systems.
