I recently purchased an Enerworks solar hot water system from Terratek. Terratek made the whole process very easy. Their installers were very professional. The collectors look like two skylights on my roof and the pump turns on even during rainy days! I would recommend Terratek to anyone looking for a solar hot water system.
