Do you install solar hot water “solar-ready” rough-in?

Yes, VREC can provide this solar rough-in installtion service. A growing number of municipalities are requiring solar hot water rough-in lines be installed in order for the building permit to be issued. The exact requirements depend on the jurisdiction but it usually consists of actually installing the solar hot water line-set or installing large diameter conduits so that the lines can be installed more easily at a later date. The reason for this city permit requirement is to make any potential solar hot water installation easier and cheaper in the future, and also bring awareness and facilitate the adoption of solar technology. VREC strongly recommend that the builder seek the guidance of a solar hot water installer regarding any solar rough-in. If installed incorrectly, it is of no use for any potential solar hot water installation.
