How much does solar water heating cost?

Purchasing a solar water heating system is an investment that pays. The purchase is typically an up-front cost of around $9,000 to $10,000. The long-term savings can be substantial. The installation cost can be offset over its lifetime. Installing a solar water heating system may reduce the portion of your PG&E natural gas bill that is charged for heating water by up to 50 to 80 percent.

Is solar water heating right for your home?

The average household uses 64 gallons of hot water for daily activities. Activities include cleaning dishes, washing clothes and taking showers or baths. That's 24,000 gallons per year. Every home that uses hot water has the potential save with solar water heating. This is especially true if there are several people in your household or if you have a larger home that uses an increased amount of hot water.

Solar water heating uses the sun, which is a free and natural resource. Solar water heating systems are also designed to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. This reduction can benefit the environment for future generations.

You may also consider a water recirculation pump.

How a water re-circulation pump works: By adding a water re-circulator pump, located at the water heater or at the faucet farthest from the water heater, hot water is circulated through the "cooled" hot water pipes until the water is hot at the faucet. The cool water is circulated back to the water heater via the cold-water line, and no water is wasted during the wait. The energy use of the re-circulation pump is less than operating a 25-watt light bulb.

SAVINGS: Saving 11,461 gallons of water per year adds up to 114,000 gallons over 10 years (the equivalent of 9 in-ground swimming pools) and $1,600 in water cost savings over 10-years when you factor in water rate increases.The system will pay for itself. The added value is in comfort and convenience of hot water on demand.

WHAT DOES IT COST? The average water re-circulation pump should run around $1,200 for proper installation and quality equipment. Addition costs to consider are energy use. The average pump will use about 219kWh per year, costing around $48 (based on a .20ยข/kWh rate). WE can typically install a water re-circ pump in one day.
