This brochure was created by the Center for Sustainable Energy California. It provides information on the rebates for solar thermal water heating systems available to Californian consumers through the California Solar Initiative (CSI). More information on solar thermal incentives can be found here. For single family residential projects, the maximum rebate for a solar thermal water heating system that displaces and electric or propane system is $1,010 and the max rebate for displacing a natural gas system with solar thermal is $1,875. Also, the CSI Thermal Program is only available to customers of one of the four investor owned utility companies in California. Installation must be done by an eligible installer or by a self-installer who has registered with the program, to be eligible for the rebate.
