Solar Water Heating: Designs, Base Prices, and Benefits

SAR Solar Water


Helping you:

  • Solar hot water saves you money on your water heating bill. With all of the rebates available, solar water heating systems can pay for themselves in four to eight years!
  • Having your own water heating system can make your household more independent and self-sufficient.

Helping the planet: 

  • Conventional water heating systems use huge amounts of fossil fuels and thus have a major impact on a household’s carbon footprint.
  • In its lifetime, the average solar water heating system prevents 34 tons of carbon emissions!
