Utility Solar Water Heating Initiative – Call for SWH (2008)

This is a letter written by the Utility Solar Water heating Initiative (USH20) to the Florida Public Service Commission in 2008. USH20 is a coalition of utilities and the solar thermal industry that focuses on implementing cost-effective solar thermal solutions for utilities and customers. Their industry members supply nearly all the SWH equipment being installed today. The letter expresses the need for  the inclusion of solar water heaters in the proposed Renewable Portfolio Standard.  To express their point, it explains the net impact of a solar water heating on the electrical grid and how it can reduce electrical demand. It also breaks down the relative cost of solar water heaters, in comparison to other renewable resources. It gives examples of SWH programs, and their success stories in Florida, Hawaii and Oregon, along with RPS programs in other states for more consideration.
