All About Heat Pump Water Heaters - 2018 Edition - Part 3

And these were the highly informative presentations by our vendor representatives who shared practical information on the specifics of their various products...

Part 2 of our 2018 Heat Pump Water Heaters event with the presentation shared by John Neal from the Association for Energy Affordability (AEA):

We were delighted to host two additional events focused on Heat Pump Water Heaters in collaboration with the City of Palo Alto Utilities, City of San Jose and Silicon Valley Energy Watch.  PHCA is finding our core expertise at bridging the gap between policy and implementation to be a great asset in helping shift the market towards high performance buildings in general... and specific equipment, such as the heat pump water heaters we showcased at these two well-attended events.


The slide presentation pdf linked above was the first presentation delivered by Danny Parker as part of this afternoon workshop.  (FIND ALL THE OTHER PRESENTATIONS under the Resources > Past Presentations drop-down menu at the top of our website here.)
