says Nate Greenleaf, R&D Director for EOS Solar.
"Typically, this is accomplished by burning a greenhouse gas emitting fossil fuel either remotely (electric), or on-site (oil / LP gas).
By installing an EOS Solar
hot water system, which pre-heats the water before it even enters your traditional hot water heater, the average family of four using an electric hot water heater can reduce their annual load from around 18 million btus of fossil fuels burned, down to about 4," he
"This would drive their costs down from around $900 a year to about $150."
They would also reduce their ecological footprint.
There is little debate now that CO2 emissions have had a large influence upon global warming, and that their reduction is important to the future of our planet.
EU leaders recently agreed in a bid to reduce the impact of climate change to drop their greenhouse gas emissions by 20% by 2020.
Our family of four would go from emitting almost 8,500 lbs. of CO2 emissions a year down to around 1,700 lbs. annually.
says, "it's that staggering."
