DC SUN Holding Forum on Solar Hot Water

DC residents have really embraced solar photovoltaic systems - more than 500 systems have gone up throughout the District.  There is much less information out there about solar hot water - although by most accounts, solar hot water may be an even better investment than solar PV.  Several homeowners that have recently installed solar hot water will be coming together to discuss their experiences, and put interested residents in touch with solar hot water installers.  The meeting is Tuesday, June 26th at 7pm at Headquarters DC, 528 F Street Terrace SE, Washington, DC 20003 - which is just a few blocks away from the Eastern Market Metro.  I hope you will be able to join other members of DC SUN and the Capitol Hill Energy Coop -- the two organizations sponsoring this forum.  Please note that the DC government has just opened a limited window for getting solar thermal rebates, so if you are thinking about it, now is the time to educate yourself.  More information and a map are at this link... https://sites.google.com/site/dcsolarunitedneighborhoods/project-updates/solarwaterheatingeducationforum 

On the agenda is a discussion by Joanna Kendig and Gene Imhoff about the solar hot water system they have had for several years.  Andy Kerr will then discuss the economics and payback for solar hot water.  Matt Carlson of Sunnovations will discuss the technology of solar hot water, then two installers, Solar Energy Services and Clean Currents will discuss their capabilities and discounts that will be available to co-op members.  This meeting is open to the public and no pre-registration is required.  I hope to see you there.

  1. Solar Energy can be utilized to offset utility-supplied energy consumption. It does not only reduce your electricity bill, but will also continue to supply your home/ business with electricity in the event of a power outage.

  6. Great news for the DC residents! States like California has started using solar power and it's continue increasing. Because of it cost and effective results, more residents have switched to solar power. It good that there are residential home solar panel leasing companies like American Solar Direct Inc.

  8. Thanks for sharing! I am currently living in DC and I have been using solar panels which I love, but I am looking to move out West and I am super excited that I found places to get solar in the bay area. It is kind of a process to get started, as you said, but once you do, it is totally worth it! Thanks again!

  11. If the housing unit at the time of the sale do not have a heating system, there is no obligation to draw up an Epc. In that case, no mention of the notary is required. If valid proof is here accepted an autographed agreement between buyer and seller which states that no heating is present at the time of the offering for sale of the property.
