Solar water heating system pay-as-you-save pilot program. Directs the State Corporation Commission to analyze, and if appropriate, to establish, a pilot program whereby residential customers who install a solar water heating system will be able to pay for the system as an item on their monthly electricity bill. Participation in the pilot program would be voluntary. Participating electricity distributors will be required to submit proposed tariffs for recovery of the costs of the systems over a term not to exceed 75% of the expected life of the system, in monthly amounts that are less than the expected reductions in the electricity bill resulting from the installation of the system.

Brilliant. I love it. Solar pre-heating is a cost-saver, but for those who don't have the money to invest in it up front, this will help, assuming that the pilot program bears that out.
