How much does a solar hot water heater cost? Solar water heaters for homes cost $3,000 to $9,000 with installation. Active solar water heating costs $2,300 to $6,000, and passive thermal water heaters cost $1,000 to $3,700 for the system alone. Solar hot water collector panels cost $800 to $1,500 each. Solar storage tank prices are $1,000 to $2,800.
How many solar panels do I need to run a hot water heater? There are solar panels that absorb and produce 100-watts, and others 300-watts. So, to run a water heater that uses up to 1500-watts, you need 15×100-watts or 15×300-watts solar panels. For 15×300-watt solar panels, you only need 3 panels which will save you roof space and will be easier to install.
Are solar hot water heaters worth it? On average, if you install a solar water heater, your water heating bills should drop 50%–80%. Also, because the sun is free, you’re protected from future fuel shortages and price hikes. If you’re building a new home or refinancing, the economics are even more attractive.
