Solar Water Heater RebateUse the Sun's Rays to Heat Water
Solar water heaters can be a cost effective way to generate hot water for your home. They can be used in any climate, and sunshine is the fuel they use and it's free. However, solar water heating systems cost more to purchase and install than a conventional water heating system, but will save you in the end. Besides saving you money, solar water heaters also provide big benefits to the planet by reducing CO2 emissions, air pollution, and demand for fossil fuels.
If you are in the market for a solar water heater, Four County strongly recommends our members to consult a tax professional to verify your ability to take full advantage of current federal and state solar tax incentitives. Do so in advance to be assured your new solar system will meet your financial expectations for payback and return on investment. Four County currently offers a $1,000 rebate for members who install a solar water heater with an electric back up.
