Why Solar Thermal?
Solar Hot Water systems generate more energy for your dollar than any other renewable resource making it a smart and practical first choice toward a Greener lifestyle.
Solar thermal technology is actually very simple and has been around for over 100 years in its most basic form. There are several renewable energy options to choose from: Geothermal, Wind and Photovoltaics(PV). The initial investment for Solar Thermal is much lower and with the nember of high quality and efficeint products available on the market today, the payback period is shorter than other renewable energy options. The sun is the most reliable and abundant source of energy. It produces 400,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 watts of energy every second!
The Solar Rating and Certification Corporation (SRCC) is an independant non-profit organization that was formed in 1980, that developos and implements certifications that regulate the flow of quality products that enter the market. The federal government, along with numerous states and itility companies, use these standards and the certifications from SRCC to base their tax credits and rebates.

Installation and Maintenance
Most solar thermal installations are comprised of the same components and function in the same manner, but every installation is site specific and there are several variables that come into play when an installation is quoted. The rule of thumb though, is that installation and cost of material and equipment tend to be equal. Installation, which ususally takes 1 - 2 days, should be performed by a NABCEP certified Solar Thermal installer such as the professionals Global Team Direct contracts. Yet, maintenance and upkeep is very low. There are a few things the homeowner/business owner can do to maintain system efficiency and prolong the life of the system. But periodic system check-ups should be performed by your installation company.
What is the Payback
Through hot showers, dishwashing, laundry, and cooking, the average two person household uses approxiamately 25 gallons of hot water per day. Thus, finding a cost-effective way to reduce or eliminate hot water production utility costs can accumulate to be a significant savings. The average household spends an average of 25% of home energy costs heating water. Solar thermal hot water heating systems can expect to save 50% - 80% annually on water heating bills. Furthermore, teh average return on investment (ROI) for a solar thermal hot water system that has been well designed and correctly installed is betwen 4 - 8 years.
