Valley Electric Association (VEA), a nonprofit member owned cooperative, developed the domestic solar water heating program to encourage energy efficiency at the request of the membership. VEA partnered with Great Basin College to train and certify installers, creating jobs in the community, and also with Rheem Manufacturing and a local licensed contractor to install the units. A site visit is performed to determine the best installation and system design for each member. Members have the option of paying cash or making an initial down payment of $50 on the unit and financing the remainder of the purchase price/installation with an interest-free installment loan for a period of nine to fourteen (9-14) years. Contact VEA for additional details. This program is currently only offered to those members in VEA’s service territory.
