Clean Currents offers two ways for you to convert the sun's rays to energy. Solar Thermal generates hot water and Solar PV (photovoltaic) generates electricity. Learn more about Solar PV options here and read on for more about Solar Thermal.
A Solar Hot Water system is the most energy efficient way to heat water - and hot water is the second biggest energy hog in your home. That equates to a potential savings of hundreds of dollars a year!
Clean Currents Thermal uses the latest technology in solar hot water systems, exclusive to our partner Sunnovations. Watch this VIDEO to learn more about this patented geyser pump system.
The average household spends $300 - $400 per year on water heating, making it the second largest energy expenditure behind heating and cooling.
Our solar water heating system absorbs energy from the sun and transfers it to your hot water, plain and simple. For most homes in the Mid-Atlantic, a solar hot water system will provide about 80% of a home's hot water needs annually
The average lifetime of a domestic water heater is 10-12 years. If your water heater is nearing the end of its lifetime, why not make the more responsible, sustainable choice?
An average family of four with an electric water heater can expect to save $275 - $300 annually by switching to solar thermal
What does a Clean Currents Thermal System Cost?
Numerous federal, state and local rebates and incentive programs help to decrease the upfront cost of a solar hot water system. For example, a Maryland homeowner who utilizes the Federal Tax Credit, the Maryland State rebate, their county tax incentives and sells the Renewable Energy Credits produced by the system can purchase a new solar hot water system for as little as $1550.
Clean Currents Thermal Makes it Easy
Clean Currents Thermal uses licensed plumbers and engineers to design your custom solar hot water system and takes care of site analysis, permitting, and processes all solar rebate paperwork. Although, we do suggest that you complete the federal tax credit filing with assistance from your tax professional.

That means little maintenance and no extra energy consumed. With Clean Currents Thermal, you will enjoy peace of mind with our turnkey installation and service.
