Lantern Energy Solar Hot Water

Solar Hot Water

One of the most powerful sources of renewable energy is also one of the most cost-effective.

The Benefits of Going Solar
Why heat your water with a solar water heating system? An Energy Star model can...
  • Cut your water bill in half. Save around $200 annually on your electric bill.
  • Reduce your carbon footprint. By reducing the load of your electric water heater, you'll prevent 4,000 lbs of carbon dioxide from entering the atmosphere each year.
  • Outlast traditional water heaters. The average life expectancy for a solar water heater is 20 years—much longer than the average gas or electric water heater!

Who Can Use Solar Water Heaters?

Solar water heaters have come a long way. Today, they can be used in almost any home, anywhere, operating even in overcast conditions and in temperatures as low as -40º!

Most systems are installed on the roof, but if your roof is not appropriate (i.e., it does not receive adequate direct sunlight, or is not sturdy enough), you may be able to have a ground-mounted system installed.
