Benefits of Electric Generation Displacement Using Solar Thermal Water Heaters (2005)

This master thesis, presented at the University of Puerto Rico, explores the benefits of solar thermal water heaters installations. Research has proven that this technology contributes to a demand reduction and reduced power losses at the transmission and distribution levels, which results in reduced costs for both utility and residential customers. Thus, the increased system’s efficiency contributes to a considerable reduction in fuel and energy cost.

An economic analysis was carried out in power systems operations to evaluate the efficiency improvements. It concluded that there could be, indeed, a considerable reduction in the monthly electricity bill for residential consumers, besides a reduction in GHG emissions.
