Solar Hot Water Heaters

Installing solar thermal panels can reduce your energy costs by as much as 65%.

Heating your water for your shower, kitchen and other use is often the second highest energy cost in a typical household.

Using instant electric water heaters or electric hot water tanks are a great back-up when the power of the sun isn’t meeting your needs.

In 2015, the Community Energy Cooperative compared Solar Water heater technology to solar PV. The study concluded that the Solar water heater that  displaces oil water heating has significant GHG savings (22.3 tonnes), and also has the highest ratio of total dollars saved to dollars invested.
