Solar savings is substantial

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.
