CSI – Thermal Program Energy Division Staff Proposal for Solar Water Heating Program (2008)
This proposal is for a Solar Water Heating program, beyond the incentive programs in place currently in California. The goals of this program would cover the following areas: increase installations for reduction in SWH technology costs; address upfront costs with incentives; reward high performing systems and increase growth of market.
It also clarifies who would administer the program and budget (with guidelines and qualifications). After the initial plan, it gives the background of solar water heating incentive programs that have been in California and general information on solar water heaters. It breaks down current incentive trends and activity that drives the solar industry.
You can find pictures and charts in the appendix for an overview of solar water heating technology.
