Solar hot water in New York

by

Here’s a solar hot water (solar thermal) that GreenHomes recently installed.  On a chilly and cloudy day in upstate New York, it’s sitting inconspicously on the roof, cranking out the hot water for the homeowners.  With a 30% federal tax credit, these make sense in overcast New York.  And Washington state.  And in sunny California and sunnier Colorado.  Solar hot water is a great way to take a big bite out of the 15% of our total energy bills that we pay to heat water.  (And heat water that we generally let run down the drain–but drainwater heat recovery is another issue.)
