What would be a typical cost and payback period for a solar thermal system providing domestic hot water for an average family of 4?
- The type of conventional energy that is replaced and its local cost (ex: gas versus electric)
- If the cost of replacement of the old or damaged conventional hot water system can be subtracted or reimbursed through incentive
- The amount of solar radiation depending on geography (ex. Southwest versus Northeast US)
- Local subsidies or tax credit that lowers total cost
