Solar Thermal & Pool Heating Systems in Costa Rica

Solar thermal and pool heating systems are a cost-effective way to generate hot water for your home in Costa Rica. As the original solar battery, solar water heating is not only a smart investment, it's the truest form of energy security.

Solar Water & Pool Heating 

We provide the following quality solutions for your solar water heating needs in Costa Rica

  • Solar Water Heating The best way to reduce your electricity costs and still maintain comfort levels in Costa Rica. Solar water heating systems use solar collectors to capture and convert sunlight into heat, providing a reliable and eco-friendly source of hot water.
  • Solar Pool Heating: Even in Costa Rica, heating a pool can be a requirement. Many owners and guests look forward to a warm pool, and a cold pool can put a damper on a vacation. Heating a pool with electricity or gas is prohibitively expensive, costing as much as $2,000 a month. Solar pool heating systems are an efficient and sustainable alternative that utilize the sun’s energy to maintain a comfortable pool temperature year-round.
  • Solar Pool Pump: If you have a pool, running the pump can be your biggest expense. A solar-powered pool pump can remove this significant cost by using solar energy to power the pump, reducing electricity consumption and operational costs.

Costa Rica's Energy Mix

Costa Rica is a global leader in renewable energy, with a remarkable energy mix that consists predominantly of renewable sources. As of recent data, over 98% of Costa Rica's electricity is generated from renewable sources, including:

  • Hydropower: Approximately 70% of Costa Rica’s electricity comes from hydropower.
  • Wind: Wind energy contributes around 15% to the national grid.
  • Geothermal: Geothermal energy accounts for about 10%.
  • Biomass and Solar: The remaining 3-4% comes from biomass and solar power.

This commitment to renewable energy significantly reduces the country's carbon footprint and promotes sustainable development. Solar water heating fits perfectly into this renewable energy landscape by providing a direct way for households and businesses to utilize solar energy, further reducing reliance on non-renewable sources and enhancing energy security.

Incentives and Rebates

Costa Rica is known for its commitment to renewable energy, supporting solar water heating through various incentives. The Costa Rican Institute of Electricity (ICE) provides rebates and financing options for solar water heating systems, making it more affordable for residents and businesses to transition to solar energy. Additionally, Costa Rica's favorable climate and high levels of solar insolation make solar thermal systems highly effective and efficient.
