Our first solar hot water system was installed in 1987 and SES just replaced it now…. It has paid for itself many times over.
The residential domestic solar hot water system is a no-brainer both in terms of usability and cost-effectiveness. A solar system will provide a minimum 70% of all your hot water needs and usually pays for itself in 2-5 years.
Has excellent financial incentives (county, state, and federal)
The solar water heating systems provided by Solar Energy Services can often last 30 years. Service recommended once every five years.

This solar system uses the sun to heat your home's water for laundry, showers, dishwasher, etc. The solar panels installed to heat your home's water are entirely different from the solar panels installed to provide your home's electricity. Even if you are considering Solar Electric (PV), for most households a Solar Water Heating System is the first priority in terms of solar efficiency and cost-effectiveness, particularly if you use a lot of hot water, as is the case with most families. Solar water heating is a mature technology that is used extensively throughout the world. In fact, the modern domestic solar water heater was invented in the USA, over 100 years ago. In addition to domestic hot water, these systems can be used in a variety of other applications such as hydronic space heating, hot tub, indoor pool, spa, and even for multiple applications tied to one system basically anywhere hot water is needed!
