Solar Hot Water

Panels that convert sunlight into heat: as simple as a one-collector hot water system or as complex as a twelve (or more) collector solar heating system. Tax incentives include a 35% state tax credit and a 30% federal tax credit.

Reduce or Stabilize Electricity Costs

It makes sense to use the sun to heat your water. Have hot water on tap all year round even if the sun isn’t shining. Use the sun’s energy to warm the water in your hot water storage tank so you’ll use a lot less energy heating it up. The most efficient application is pre-heating domestic hot water. This application is a year-round load so the investment is producing income in all seasons.

Commercial properties with high hot water loads are the best candidates – hotels, health clubs, restaurants, hospitals, nursing homes and any multifamily building are all excellent candidates.

See a Return on Your Solar Investment

Homeowners often see a return within nine to eleven years, and commercial properties often see a return within five to seven years.

Reduce Your Use of Fossil Fuels

Many people are concerned about the effects of fossil fuels on our environment and our planet. From deep-water oil drilling to carbon emissions generated by our vehicles, there are many dangers associated with generating energy to support our modern lives. By choosing solar, you reduce the demand for fossil fuels and begin to minimize the risks associated with conventional energy use and collection.

Decrease Our National Dependency on Foreign Oil

Reduce Your Carbon Footprint

In the U.S., the average household using conventional energy sources emits 16,290 pounds of CO2, (a greenhouse gas), while a home with a typical solar energy system installed reduces CO2 emissions by more than half.

Help Preserve our Resources for Generations to Come

Solar energy is a responsible, dependable, renewable energy source. With a solar energy system on your home, you’re decreasing demand on our limited natural resources and the impact extracting those resources has on our environment and on us.
