A lot of people think that to see any real benefit from solar that you have to have huge sprawling tube arrays all over your roof – that just is not true! A one panel system like this hooked up to existing water heater is $4500 installed cost prior to incentives. Put together with a 30% federal tax credit and 100% deduction on Idaho State taxes over 4 years and there’s no denying that solar saves dollars and makes sense!
Our solar thermal solutions are particularly effective when combined with solar PV from our partners at Evengreen Technology!
Here you will see solar radiant heating and water heating combined with another group of panels provide solar thermal snow melt. It is by blending our technology together that we can provide a superior solution and move many homes closer to net zero.
The RENW team visited this customer recently to take a solar shade off the first solar thermal panel.
This renewable energy project was installed in February of 2016; they turned off their hot water heater that month. The extra energy beyond providing all the hot water they will need in the winter will also assist heating the house. With Winter predicted to hit hard this year the difference comfort a solar radiant system could make for you family is something you can feel. No more chilly toes, a warm cozy house, AND lower energy costs – that’s all win!
Have you been considering the move to solar? Prices on installation have continued to go down as efficiency has gone up; it’s a great time to consider the savings that going green can provide for you. We LOVE helping our customer slash their energy bills and live more sustainable lives!
