The illustration to the right is an example of a possible solution for your home. This is only an example. Your home may require a larger or a smaller system which would have corresponding rebates and tax credits. 

Solar thermal is the collection, storage, and use of heat from sunshine to generate hot water. It is one of the most efficient means of using solar energy. Think about how hot your car gets when you park it in the sun – with a thermal product, you capture this energy and make it work for you. There is a huge amount of energy in solar radiation, and the sunshine on one square foot in one year is equal to the energy in 2.5 gallons of oil. Two or three collectors can easily supply all the hot water for an average family on sunny days. Even on cloudy days, they can make a substantial contribution and cut utility bills.
