Solar water heating is a cost-effective way to boost your existing water heater’s efficiency and supply, while reducing utility costs.

A solar water heating system captures the sun’s heat and works with your conventional or tankless water heater to heat your water more efficiently. Unlike solar power (photovoltaic) systems that generate electricity, solar water heating systems absorb and transfer solar heat energy, so the technology is also referred to as solar thermal.

Upgrading to solar water heating can help you:

  • Enjoy an instant and longer-lasting supply of hot water
  • Maintain hot water supply during unexpected utility disruptions
  • Lower your water heating bills
  • Receive federal, state and/or local rebates
  • Increase your home’s property value
  • Reduce your energy consumption
