Rheem Manufacturing Co. has formed an association with the Valley Electric Association (VEA) to launch what the company says is the largest domestic solar water heating (DSWH) program ever undertaken in the U.S.
This program offers each member of the VEA, an electrical co-op servicing more than 22,000 meters within Nevada and California, an opportunity to install a Rheem solar water heating system in their residence.
The installations will use SolPak, an active, closed-loop solar water heating system that uses a pump to circulate a non-toxic heat-transfer fluid through the system. Rheem SolPak arrives packaged with all the components needed to complete a standard installation, the company adds.
VEA will provide 0% interest financing to members who choose to participate in the DSWH program. Participating members will also be eligible to receive a federal tax credit of up to 30% of the installed cost, including labor.
