Solar Hot Water Systems
Electric hot water systems are extremely inefficient – discover how you can save cash by reducing your energy bills with hybrid solar water heaters. These types of systems can be very effective in heating water as they use solar to heat the water but have a fallback to either gas or electric systems. Most people would say that is you have access to Gas then solar water heaters aren’t really worth the return on investment, however with increasing gas prices and the fact that you still get incentives through the Federal STC program – these system may still be worth it if you are on Gas.
Some states also still provide incentives (like Victoria), but some do not such as NSW and QLD. To find out if your State still provides incentives visit the respective page on our site.
