Commercial solar pool installations use the sun’s warmth to heat up your pool. This can extend the swimming season for your customers and reduce operational costs (if you are currently heating the pool with conventional resources).
Although many pools in Southern California may be comfortable to use without any heating for 2 or 3 months a year, solar energy can keep the pool at a comfortable temperature (78 to 85 F) for up to 6 months, and sometimes as long as 8 months. If a pool cover or blanket is also employed to reduce heat loss at night, then the swimming season can be even longer.
Heating your pool with solar energy greatly reduces your operational costs, allowing you to dedicate more budget funds to your organization. Over its lifetime, a solar pool heater is much more affordable than a natural gas heater, and is the best way to levelize your cost of energy.
Our high-quality systems will pay for themselves in 2-4 years, and will continue to perform after the warranty period (10-20 years) has expired. Many quality solar pool heaters can last as long as 25 or 30 years.
Solar incentives are now available for commercial installations in the territories of PG&E, SDG&E and So Cal Gas. They can reduce the payback period to as little as 1-2 years. The incentive program was put together by the California PUC to reduce the Green House Gases that result from heating public and semi-public pools with conventional fuels.
Organizations that can cash in on these solar rebates include: hotels, motels, apartment complexes, condos, health clubs, water parks, schools and gymnasiums, and more. If a swimming pool is part of a commercial facility, then tax benefits may also applicable.
