Commercial Solar Hot Water

Our Commercial Solar Hot Water Systems Can Deliver As Much As 70% to 80% of Your Annual Hot Water Needs.

Do you need a commercial solar hot water system in the San Francisco or Los Angeles area?

Commercial solar hot water can greatly reduce the energy needs of any business. A full-sized commercial solar powered hot water system can provide most or all of the hot water needed for all your applications. Due to high-energy requirements for lighting, temperature control, dishwashing, and refrigeration, restaurants are especially ideal for solar hot water.

How much does a solar hot water system cost?

The question we receive next usually always regards the cost. The price varies based on your needs and sometimes costs more to purchase and install than conventional water heating systems. However, the right solar hot water heating system saves you money in the long run.

  • In some cases, we can create a system with reduced storage, lowering the cost of the system by approximately 5% and allowing the tank to be located on the roof without the need for structural upgrades.
  • We work with you to weigh all choices to determine which system is best for your business so you experience the return on your investment in the most reasonable time.

Commercial hot water solar system installation

We want to ensure you get exactly what you need and see impressive savings. First, we define your energy goals. Then the solar thermal engineer will determine the correct solar hot water heating system size and equipment to meet those goals. We will design your commercial solar hot water system based on the following:

  • The amount of hot water you use or expect to use.
  • Your geographic location and solar resource.
  • Available financing, state rebates, and incentives.
  • The cost of conventional fuels (natural gas, oil, and electricity).
  • The cost of the fuel you use for your backup water heating system if you have one.

After doing an extensive site visit, the project engineer will identify the best location for the commercial solar hot water system.  Before installation starts, our experts will review and verify that the system layout matches the project goals so your installation is a success.
