State Public Utilities Commission Approves New Rebate for Solar Pool Heating

Novato and Sonoma based SolarCraft announced the State Public Utilities Commission under the California Solar Initiative Program has just approved a rebate for qualified solar heating installations on all commercial swimming pools.

Under this program 30% to 50% or more of the initial cost of the solar pool heating system will be refunded back. There is $80 million available on a first come first serve basis until the funds run out.

This program applies to all multi-family commercial, government, educational and non-profit swimming pools that are PG&E customers. Solar pool heating systems in single-family residential installations are not eligible to receive incentives.

The incentive for eligible solar pool heating systems is only available to gas customers who have a final signed-off permit issued by the appropriate permitting agency on or after January 1, 2013.

A properly sized and installed solar heating system can easily keep your pool at 78 to 84 degrees from mid-April through September, and sometimes well into October, without the use of expensive supplemental heat.

Since 1984 SolarCraft has been the North Bay industry leader in the design and installation of solar pool heating systems to commercial, governmental and institutional facilities. They are the sole distributor of FAFCO solar water heating products in Marin and Sonoma County – the number one selling brand in the USA since 1969 and manufactured in Chico, California.
