    I understand that Make It Right uses solar panels in its energy efficient design, why don’t you use solar hot water as well?

  • Hey Katherine, using solar thermal panels to heat water is a pretty affordable use of solar power. For the houses we are building in the Lower Ninth Ward though, Noritz donated tankless on demand water heaters. With our current configuration, a solar thermal system would be redundant, and we often need the roof space for our solar panels.

    To learn more about how we use Solar check out our Library entry and our Solar FAQ.
