Just imagine having a shower, cleaning dishes or doing laundry with free solar thermal energy!
Hot water is the second highest utility cost in a typical household, after space heating. It represents about 35% of total energy consumption in our homes, according to Environment Canada. Japan and Germany are current leaders in the solar markets, yet BC’s climate shows greater solar potential than both countries. Does solar work here? Yes, it does!
Terratek has installed hundreds of solar hot water systems (solar thermal) on residential homes across British Columbia, winning Contractor of the Year with SolarBC for all three years of the program’s run. SolarBC went on to become the most successful solar pilot program in Canada, out of 14! We have also installed solar water heating systems on over 30 schools in the province, as well as multiple municipal buildings.
Solar Water Heating For Your Home
Installing a solar thermal energy system is one of the most reliable and cost-effective renewable solutions to reducing your electric or gas bill. When properly installed a system can provide up to 60% of your annual water heating, enabling year-round savings on your utility bill.
