Solar Thermal Power (2007)
This brochure was created by the Solar Energy Industries Association (SEIA). It quickly explains how solar thermal water heating works, the necessity of essential tax credits to the industry, some of the key technology in the systems, and how certification works.
Solar thermal water heating directly uses the energy of the sun to heat the water in consumer’s homes. The Investment Tax Credit for solar thermal incentives the installation of solar thermal water heating equipment, thus helping insure the long term pay back in both energy costs and environmental benefits,.
