How to become a solar hot water installer

Are you a Certified Free Hot Water installer… yet?

In Free Hot Water’s continuing effort to get more attention and promote higher standards for solar hot water heating, the company has established a new recognition program for solar thermal installers.

To launch the program, we’re focusing on installers in Northern California where our head quarters is based. In addition to added brand recognition, Free Hot Water will assist with lead generation, design, engineering, and solar collector selection for the application. We work with any preferred OG-300 system or OG-100 collectors.
