SOLAR HOT WATER HEATERS
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 benefits include:
• Anticipated payback period of 3 to 7 years with the help of state, federal and utility incentives.
• Solar energy systems can take advantage of the sun's free energy year round.
• Solar energy can be produced even at low temperatures.
• Between tax credits and energy savings, this system offers a faster return on your investment than other types
of solar energy systems.
• Lower first-time start up cost than solar photovoltaic (PV) systems.Source: U.S. Department of Energy EERE
