Solar water heater cuts costs
The Wisconsin State Journal, December 27, 2005, ran an excellent story by Marv Balousek on the installation of a solar water heater on a Madison home:
Caleb Pourchot has found a way to escape a portion of the higher utility bills that are hitting most homeowners this winter.
He watched last week at his East Side home as a crew installed a solar water heating system, which will include solar panels on the roof and a new water heater in the basement. The system will heat some of the hot water used in Pourchot’s home.
