Last December, the Earth Policy Institute shared how fast…
…rooftop solar water heaters are being installed around the world!
This is great news, and very inspiring for us in the USA, and even those here in Southwest Florida!
Practically every home in the US has a water heater. Water heaters work continuously to keep the water they contain hot, and using the power of the sun is not only environmentally friendly, it reduces your energy bills, adds value to your home, AND extends the life of your hot water tank (they dramatically reduce scaling!)
Be sure to learn more about our solar water heater solutions, and how you can start saving while helping protect our environment! If you have any questions, feel free to give us a call at (239) 574-1500.
The Earth Policy Institute article reviews how:
- China is leading the world – with nearly two thirds of the world’s solar thermal collectors installed.
- Europe, where energy costs are relatively high, rooftop solar water heaters are spreading fast,
- the US rooftop solar water heating industry is a historically concentrated niche market,
- solar water and space heaters in Europe and China often pay for themselves in less than 10 years.
