For example, did you know that Solar Thermal contributes towards a LEED Certification? Homes can receive up to three points for installing high-efficiency water heaters. Though there are a few different types of water heaters that can provide these points, a solar water heater that provides more than 60% of a home’s annual domestic hot water can earn tenants the maximum number of allotted points in this category.
According to SEIA, In 2010, the U.S. saw 35,464 solar water heating systems and 29,540 solar pool heating systems installed, heating a total of more than 65,000 homes, businesses and pools.
