Solar Water Heater Program

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.


The program is designed to reduce energy consumption in the home. By reducing the energy bills of low-income families as opposed to offering aid, weatherization reduces dependency and liberates these funds for spending on more pressing family issues.
