Solar hot water heaters offer a number of advantages. For a start, they use a very simple technical solution, whether in terms of design or equipment installation. Above all, they are powered by the sun, a free and abundant energy source. For these reasons, EDF has introduced a programme on Reunion Island to inform people of the advantages and offer financial help to equip the maximum number of homes with a solar water heater. And it’s proving a big success.
45% of homes on the island now have a solar hot water heater
40% potential reduction of power bills
