Solar Energy is the Future, Your Future!
Use Solar to Tame Your Water Heater!
Heating water is a large part of your home’s energy use. It is an appliance that is in almost constant use for bathing, laundry, washing dishes, etc.. In the course of one year an 80-gallon electric water heater is estimated to cost about $900 to run and uses 8,800 kWh of electricity that in turn contributes about 6,600 pounds of CO2 to the atmosphere.
A natural gas powered heater can seem to be a better solution, but it still accounts for about $400 a year in costs and 3,900 pounds of CO2 per year. Also the process to extract natural gas via “fracking” creates harmful air emissions, water contamination, and serious problems associated with the disposal of horizontal fracking waste fluids.
Solar water heaters also called Solar Domestic Hot Water SDHW systems are a cost effective way to generate hot water for your home. They can be used in any climate and the fuel they use, sunshine, is free. Installing a solar water heater system can reduce energy bills and corresponding CO2 emissions by 50 percent or more depending on where you live. Solar is an excellent clean energy source because sunlight is limitless, free and emits nothing when converted into energy.
