No, we all have our little squat tank above our washers. Another condo I own has a 50 year old solar water system that was so over engineered that as collectors fail we just bypass them. We did replace our storage tank for $40-60,000 a few years back but it has been a great resource. Trying to go solar electric but individual metered so it is hard for someone to allow someone else to use "their" roof for collectors.

Another condo that I have has a ground source heat pump for hot water and the "waste" from this is AC in our garbage room! That is what gave me the idea to look for AC that I could heat water with.

And where I live we have community electric and hot water. We are gas hot water but no AC but we are in a great spot to do solar electric but hard to get agreement.

There is a $300 Hawaii Energy Rebate available if you buy a heat pump water heater. If you can't do solar it's probably your best option, and this way they pay for part of it:

Nothing is for free. If you have free hot water service where you live, you are probably paying some other fee to cover for it. Like parking fee. Or Maintenance fee. Something. Just not free hot water. How do I know this? Tenants staying with out paying are not getting any water in their apartments. Until cleared by someone. I don't know who. But someone. The manager of the apartments maybe. But someone cleared it.
