Swimming Pools Right for Solar Energy
Category: Solar Pool
Solar is the wave of the future for home pool systems-good news for you and for the planet. Swimming pools use a substantial amount of energy compared to other systems in your home. One utility district in California estimates that over the course of an average summer, a typical pool will consume the same amount of energy as an average home uses in three months. Using non-renewable energy, such as that from natural gas or coal-fired power plants, can cost you upwards of $2,000 every year. This article reviews the benefits of three types of solar energy systems for use around swimming pools: solar water pool heaters, solar pool pumps and solar showers.
