The Utility Solar Water Heating Initiative (USH2O) is a coalition of utilities and the solar thermal industry that focuses on implementing cost-effective, reliable solar solutions for utilities and their customers. USH2O advocates the application of solar water heating for renewable portfolio standards (requiring that a percentage of utility electric sales are produced or offset by renewables) and green pricing programs (providing customers with the option to purchase and support renewables). USH2O provides information about utility water heating programs and offers services to utility companies and energy service providers considering implementation.
