Solar Water Heater Program

The Solar Water Heater Program provides for the installation of solar water heating systems in low income households.

Program Overview

The Solar Water Heater Program provides for the installation of solar water heating systems in low income households.  One of the most cost-effective ways to include renewable technologies into a building is by incorporating solar hot water.

A typical residential solar water-heating system reduces the need for conventional water heating by about two-thirds. It minimizes the expense of electricity, which in some cases can account for 20% of a household's income, for low-income residences, this can be a substantial impact.

The program utilizes passive type solar systems that require no maintenance.
