Commercial Solar Hot Water
Substantial savings in natural gas, propane and electricity can be realized through the use of solar thermal in commercial hot water heating systems. The size of these systems can range from small pre-heat to large scale hot water heating providing up to 90% percent of the heating demand. Hotels, motels, car washes, breweries, restaurants, hospitals, schools, laundry facilities, recreational and fitness clubs are a few examples where solar hot water systems are very effective in reducing the amount of fuel used in heating water. Retrofitting existing facilities to solar thermal in many cases is a simple process. The use of Solar Thermal has been proven to extend the life of water heaters. Federal tax credits of 30% are available through 2033.
