The installation of a Solar Hot Water System is an investment. PG&E is an utility company in California. It’s current California Solar Initiative (CSI) Thermal program can provide financial assistance of up to $4,000 to help users set up their own system. This only applies to homeowners who currently heat their water with natural gas, not for those who heat with propane or electricity. Furthermore, it should be noted that the incentives are finite. The last applications for the Solar Water Heating program will be accepted on July 31, 2020.
In addition to the CSI there are tax credits available for owners of a solar system.
The amount of the incentive for the individuals depends on the system’s performance. IGS is happy to advise interested parties.
