what a bunch of pr bull crap
nice to know our gvt is promoting 10% solutions when when renewables like sunbandit or any solar thermal offer 90% solutions or even carmines htx which offers a 50% solution at much lower cost

hrx plus solar way to go  to save 90% of dhw energy instead  of spending 1000 $ to replace a 90% eff wtr htr with 95%eff to save 5% of energy

Similar to last year, the goal is to reach consumers directly with the call-to-action to plan their replacement, before their old water heater fails, to avoid an emergency replacement and benefit from the big savings they can get from ENERGY STAR as well as available rebates.

>> incentive program managers. Please join us for a webinar that will:
>> 
>>   - Update you on the 2016 ENERGY STAR water heater campaign, including
>>   the new tools and resources available to help you promote ENERGY STAR
>>   certified water heaters
>>   - Review the importance of plumbers in the water heater market chain
>>   - Provide two perspectives, one from New Jersey Natural Gas and
>>   another from CenterPoint Energy, on the best and most efficient means to
>>   reach and educate plumbers about incentives and efficient water heaters
>>

>> EPA has a strong media mix planned to support the ENERGY STAR water heater

>> offerings. Highlights include:
>> 
>>   - *National Media Partnerships*
>>      - This Old House and Bob Vila: EPA is partnering with these two
>>      popular media channels to promote both the benefits of ENERGY STAR water
>>      heaters and combat some of the market barriers to consumers choosing high
>>      efficiency water heaters ? particularly heat pump water heaters ? by
>>      showcasing an install with This Old House (guaranteed 886,000 impressions)
>>      and building upon past success with Bob Vila, to do a two-series post about
>>      water heaters, e.g., ?How to Choose a New Water Heater? and ?Everything
>>      You?ve Wanted to Ask a Contractor about Heat Pump Water Heaters? with a
>>      potential reach of more than 1.2 million.
>>   - *Geo-targeted Outreach*
>>      - Paid general search and Google Display Network ads ? Targeting
>>      consumers who are experiencing problems with their water heaters, but are
>>      not in a panic replacement mode yet.
>>      - YouTube Pre-Roll ? Geo-targeted pre-roll placements promoting Ask
>>      the Expert video
