Why Go Solar?

1. Save Utility Costs

At home:

  • Solar water heater can provide up to 80% of your hot water saving a family up to $1,000 per year
  • Larger solar arrays supplement space heating and increase solar utilization
  • Homes with propane or electric water heating will realize even larger savings

At work:

  • Remote locations including work camps save fuel cost, improve comfort and increase safety
  • Commercial or industrial operations that use heat reduce utility costs with solar heating
  • Non-explosive solar is used to heat remote telecommunications, well-heads and pipeline facilities.

At Play:

  • Cabins and ski chalets save on expensive propane and electric heating as well as increase comfort and safety with solar heating
  • Pools and hot tubs heated with solar remove the high utility costs and increase your enjoyment

2. Increase Independence

  • Realize a sense of accomplishment by creating your own heat, just like growing your own vegetables
  • Connect with nature with a solar heater by noticing solstice cycles, weather effects and heating demands
  • Protect yourself and your family from utility systems being out due to weather, over-demand or operating failures
  • Looking for a way to get back at ‘The Man’? Solar heating is a great start!

3. Reduce your Environmental Footprint

  • Solar Thermal systems are the best renewable energy method to significantly reduce your GHG emissions:
    • every Solar thermal collector installed saves the equivalent of 1.2 acres of carbon-absorbing forest
    • every two-collector heater has the same environmental benefit as buying a hybrid car but the solar heater costs half as much and lasts twice as long
  • 75% of our homes’ energy is used for heat; 30 to 60% of this can be provided by solar heating
  • Solar heating can be used in any heating system to reduce fuel consumption and save on GHG’s

4. Take Action

  • Become part of the solution to increasing GHG emission, don’t continue to be part of the problem
  • Promote deployment and innovation of renewable energy
  • Participate in the decentralization of our existing energy systems
  • Set an example for others to follow your ‘green’ lead

5. Be Financially Wise

  • Realize there is no payback on your current utility bill
  • Savings on utility costs are tax-free
  • Solar heating is an effective hedge against future utility cost increases
  • Utility cost savings can be greater than financing costs
