Fired Up (by the Sun), Ready to Go

Updated: Feb 26

PennEnvironment’s new report on solar water heating, “Smart, Clean, and Ready to Go,” provides a comprehensive overview of the technologies of using the sun’s power to heat our water, the potential reductions our country could achieve in electricity and natural gas usage, and how we stack up globally in use of these technologies.

There are some eye-opening numbers included. 

If you don’t count our solar-heated swimming pools, we rank lower than Albania on a per-capita heating capacity basis, and Germany, per-capita, has 14 times our capacity. 

Read the full report or the executive summary to learn more about where we rank, how we can improve, and what it would mean to our economy and our air quality.
