Last month, California approved rebates of up to $1500 for homeowners and businesses that install solar thermal water heaters.
These heaters use the warmth of the sun to heat water for use in the bathroom, kitchen, and laundry room. While a typical hot water system runs between $5000 - $7000, studies have shown that using a solar hot water heater can significantly cut your natural gas or electric bill. Would you switch to a solar water heater if you could take advantage of a $1500 rebate?
