World’s first Energy Star water heater by GE
GE has been going taking giant leaps in going green these days. Recently they opened a technology centre and office in Bahrain to offer services and green initiatives to companies and businesses. The company will be launching the world’s first Energy Star water heater called GE Hybrid Electric Water Heater late this year when you will be able to get hot water using just half the energy.
What the system does is take natural heat from the air and transfers it into water which will then save around $250 per year in heat-up costs. There is an electronic control system with set controls and also has onboard sensors that enable the device to self-monitor and notify the homeowner of potential problems.
