This document serves as a guide or outline to potentially creating a fee-for-service program in the Caribbean to deliver solar thermal water heating. It was created by The Renewable Energy & Energy Efficiency Partnership (REEEP). The goal is for a utility company servicing both residences and businesses in the Caribbean to start offering solar thermal water heating as a part of their energy mix. The utility company in question can use money from Certified Emission Reduction (CER) sales to better leverage the investment from investors. The main technology used will be flat plate collectors. It is estimated that this program would offset 100,000 tons of CO2 over ten years.
