Rheem announced an association with the Valley Electric Association (VEA) to launch what is reportedly the largest Domestic Solar Water Heating (DSWH) program ever in the U.S.
The program offers each member of VEA, an electrical co-op serving 150,000 residents in Nevada and California, an opportunity to install a Rheem SolPak active solar water heating system in their residence.
Rheem said that members switching from electric or propane water heating systems will save between $250 and $550 annually on water heating and will help to eliminate 15.4 million pounds of carbon dioxide annually and save $34 million, collectively, on energy costs over the next 20 years. Zero percent interest financing to members who choose to participate in the DSWH program and participating members will also be eligible to receive a Federal tax credit of up to 30% of the installed cost, including labor.
