The Massachusetts Clean Energy Center (MassCEC) has unveiled a new rebate program to help Massachusetts residents finance solar hot water projects. The rebate will amount to approximately $1,000 per system for a typical residential solar hot water system for a four to five person household.
A solar hot water system can be connected to a home’s existing hot water tank to heat water and usually provides 50 percent to 75 percent of total household hot water needs. Because about 20 percent of the energy a consumer uses at home goes to heating hot water, solar hot water systems can generate significant savings by decreasing the amount of gas, oil or electricity used to heat the water.
