After many, many months of investigation, examination, deliberation and negotiation we have finally installed a solar hot water system at the Bakery. Four solar panels – 160 square feet of sun suckers – provide us with up to 200 gallons of hot water a day. When the system is working at full efficiency, this water comes off the roof at 170 degrees F, essentially cutting our old gas water heater out of the loop. Of course, into each life a little rain must fall, but over the course of a typical year this system should provide about 80% of our total hot water needs. The tax incentives are excellent at both the federal and state level and the prices of systems keep dropping as more and more companies start up. It’s a great idea and YOU should do it too.
