Don’t miss your chance to get $1,000 off either solar panels or solar pool heating! (Offer ends March 31.)
There are a multitude of benefits in having either solar panels or solar pool heating installed! For starters, you can receive a tax credit up to 30 percent of the value solar panel installation. There are also solar rebates, which may help you offset the price of a solar pool heater. You may also qualify for a sales tax exemption on the purchase price of installation, or receive property tax exemptions if you improve your property with solar panels.
Best of all, you may get performance payments and get rewarded with a per-kilowatt-hour bonus, or a Solar Renewable Energy Certificate, which can be a great way to reduce part of the installation of a new solar water heater.
A new solar water heater can significantly reduce swimming pool heating costs and can be the most cost-effective use of solar energy in many climates.
How does a solar water heater work?
Pool water is pumped through the filter and then through the solar collector(s). Solar pool collectors are all unique depending on your climate and how you intend to use the collector. Next, the water is heated before it is returned to the pool.
A solar pool heating system usually costs between $4,200 and $6,000 to buy and install, and typically lasts longer than gas and heat pump pool heaters. To determine what kind of solar pool heating system you’ll need, make these considerations:
- Evaluate your site’s solar resource
- Determine the correct system size
- Determine the correct orientation and tilt for the collector
- Determine the system’s efficiency
- Compare system costs
- Investigate local codes, covenants and regulations
You also need to consider your site’s solar resource since the efficiency and design of a solar pool heater depends on how much of the sun’s energy reaches your building site. If you’re considering solar, we’re always here to help you make evaluations and answer questions. Today, solar panels offer a lot of value to customers in both renewable energy and financial gains.
