The City of Ashland Conservation Division offers a solar water heating program to its residential electric customers who currently use an electric water heater. Under "The Bright Way to Heat Water Program," qualified home owners may choose either the cash rebate or a zero-interest loan. Cash rebates of up to $1,000 are available for approved systems. The rebate amount is calculated as $0.40 times the estimated annual kilowatt-hour (kWh) savings (the Oregon Department of Energy provides the estimates for approved systems). Interested customers are provided site evaluations, consumer education, information about available solar systems, and the names of qualified contractors.
