What is Solar Hot Water?
From the Massachusetts Clean Energy Center: A solar hot water system captures heat from sunlight and circulates the thermal energy to a water tank. Solar hot water systems reduce the usage of traditional water heating fuels, such as oil, electricity, or propane, saving consumers money on their energy bills.
These systems can provide up to 80% of domestic hot water needs. Solar hot water systems can also offset process hot water needs or pre‐heat boiler resupply water. Incentives of up to $100,000 are available for qualifying projects.
