Solar Thermal

Solar thermal (ST) is one of the most cost-effective renewable energy systems. Solar thermal water heating systems collect the sun's energy in the form of thermal or heat energy. The system can save a major portion of your utility bill.

It will save you plenty, as you won't need as much gas or electricity to heat water for your home: the sun will do most of the work. Sunlight (always free) heats your water from a regular temperature (less than 10 degrees Fahrenheit) to a temperature somewhere between 50 and 80 degrees Fahrenheit. This drastically reduces your water heating costs.

A solar thermal water heater system can easily save you $1,000 per year, depending on where you live.
