Why Solar Water Heating?

With 40% of the average Hawaii family’s electric bill going towards heating water, solar water heating ensures you have hot water in times of poor weather and heavy use while lowering your water energy costs. Alternate Energy, Inc installs solar water heating systems that uses the sun light to heat water up through a circulation pump, which is run by electricity generated from a photovoltaic (PV) module on your roof. Photovoltaic modules lasts for decades, have no moving or wearing parts, and require minimal maintenance.
