According to theNorth 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.

Despite having 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.
