Are there experienced reputable suppliers and installers of household solar water heating systems in the Zihuatanejo area? I see some limited movement toward solar electricity generating, but I don’t think I have seen any household solar water heating installed.

Maybe it is just that they are on roofs and I don’t spend much time on roofs. :-)

While we have 4 solar water heating panels on our roof here in Montana, I've not seen any in Zihua. On a couple of occasions, when our old water heater quit working, I was able to shower under the "cold" water because the solar heat on the black tinaco had made the water warm enough.

Call Ferreteria Guerrero, 755 115 6616. Ask for Mario who speaks good English.
He sells the equipment you require and can arrange for the installation.

Start looking at up and you will see quite a few of them. They are also displayed at most of the large hardware stores.

I have had one in my house in Las Mesas since 2011 and it has worked great. Needs regular maintenance due to corrosion caused by the salt air even though I am 4 km straight line to salt water. Price has come down over the years. Readily available at many building supply and hardware stores.

While we have a very economical gas water heater, we almost NEVER use it because this is the tropics where water at ambient temperature is almost always pleasant except after a couple of cloudy days with rain, and even then it's not that bad. Food for thought.

I SO agree, but sometimes he wants to add a little warm to the shower.

There are some condos just off Playa Palmar adjacent to the Palma Real golf course. You can easily see from the beach that all the buildings have solar panels on the roofs. I think these were installed about 5-6 years ago.
