The savings one can realize by installing a solar hot water system is so
substantial that more householders should be made aware of its benefits
especially because Kaua’i Electric Company is offering a rebate of the cost of
installation. This is a way to reduce one’s electric bill and also help the
provider lessen our dependency on oil to generate electricity. Our experience
is that, on the average, a family of 4 or more members can expect a reduction
of about $50 per month on their electric bill. We have several rental units and
took advantage of the rebate offer by Kaua’i Electric even though it cost a few
dollars to install the solar heaters. Overall, the rebate is about two thirds
of the cost of installing a solar system.
The process of installing a solar
heater system is very simple. Just call Kaua’i Electric at 245-8285 for more
information. The cooperation and assistance extended is just great. Although
there are some qualifications to benefit from this offer, there is no
obligation to find out.
