SunBandit Solar Hot Water

Solar Hot Water – SunBandit Solar Hybrid Energy Systems

You have two options for solar hot water, photovoltaic solar hot water, and thermal solar hot water, here you can find out all about the SunBandit Photovoltaic Solar Hot Water system that is installed by Rising Sun.

Hot water is the biggest component of your home energy bill. When you switch to energy-efficient solar water heating, you can save up to 40% on your home electric bill.  Adding Solar Hot Water to your home is a simple, but important first step towards big energy savings.

Photovoltaic (PV) Solar Hot Water

Photovoltaic hot water is great alternative to conventional thermal solar, and avoids having plumbing and water storage on your roof.

Photovoltaic hot water has no moving parts on the roof at all. Instead, Rising Sun install a couple of high-quality photovoltaic panels and connect them to a specialized home hot water tank. The direct current (DC) energy from the solar panels flows into a direct current heating element in the hot water tank and gives you a plentiful supply of hot water at home.

Because the panels are only connected to the heating element, and are not connected to the utility grid, you do not need utility approval to install Photovoltaic hot water. This makes Photovoltaic hot water a pretty easy way to reduce your home energy usage, that can be installed quicker and easier than a home solar system.

With Hawaii Energy’s rebate combined with state and federal tax credits, you can save nearly 70% on the system purchase price in the first year.

What our Customers say about SunBandit

With a family household of seven, the SunBandit seemed like it could be a great investment. I was actually stunned by the final results — we never run out of hot water and our electricity bill has noticeably dropped each month compared to the same month the prior year, before the SunBandit. It feels great to have improved our quality of life while lowering our footprint.
