On October 5, California’s Governor Jerry Brown signed Assembly Bill 2249, expanding the California Solar Initiative-Thermal (CSI-Thermal) incentive program to include non-residential swimming pools. This program expansion should be great news for facilities (in California) that commonly operate commercial pools, such as multifamily and apartment buildings, government and educational facilities, and hotels.

Pool heating is one of the most efficient applications of solar thermal, and solar pool-heating systems typically provide some of the fastest payback times the technology has to offer. Pool heating in California consumes a vast amount of natural gas. Owners who invest in a solar pool-heating system can significantly reduce both their natural gas bills and the facility’s site-generated greenhouse gases.

SunWater Solar applauds the signing of Assembly Bill 2249 and would like to especially thank the California Solar Energy Industry Association (CalSEIA), which was instrumental in the passage of the bill.
