According to the North Country Times, homeowners in California’s San Diego County who heat their water with propane will soon lose a local subsidy for buying a solar water heater. They have been subsidized for two years in San Diego County under a pilot program run by the California Center for Sustainable Energy.
installed only 300 systems, the program has been deemed a success and will be
offered statewide on April 1.
However, because the subsidy
is funded by utility ratepayers and propane users aren’t connected to
utility-run natural gas lines, propane-heated homes in San Diego County will no
longer be eligible for the incentive.
