This report was written in cooperation with the Environment California Research & Policy Center and the Frontier Group in 2007. The report starts with a summary of exactly what solar thermal systems do, how they can have a positive effect on natural gas consumption and stating that the renewed interest in solar hot water can be traced back to the energy crisis of the 1970s. Focusing on California, it states that more than 85 percent of their natural gas comes from out of state, and with appropriate incentives, California can jumpstart a mainstream market for solar hot water, like the state has done for solar electric. It discusses California’s potential and public policies of the past we can learn from.
