Sunward, a manufacturer of plug-and-play solar hot water systems, and groSolar, an installer of solar hot water and solar photovoltaic systems, have signed a new partnership that will make groSolar a certified vendor and installer of the Sunward solar hot water system.
Available directly from the company or through certified partners, the Sunward system installs quickly, works in any climate and cuts household energy bills by up to $800 per year, according to the companies. By teaming with groSolar, Sunward now offers homeowners an installation option throughout New England and the Mid-Atlantic states, as well as in parts of California.
The complete Sunward system, fully installed by groSolar, starts at $9,846 before federal tax incentives, or $6,892 after the federal tax credit. State and utility incentives can lower the final cost below $5,000, the companies add, and financing is available.
