Solar Thermal

Solar thermal energy is a technology for harnessing solar energy for thermal energy.

Solar water heating systems use free heat from the sun to warm domestic hot water. A conventional boiler or immersion heater can be used to make the water hotter, or to provide hot water when solar energy is unavailable.

The technology is simple, effective and sustainable which is good for the environment - now and in the future.

During the summer months, a solar water heating system can generate up to 90% of the hot water required for an average household; even on duller days some hot water can be produced, with the remainder being provided either by a conventional boiler or electric immersion heater. On average, a well-designed solar heating system will generate around 55% of the annual domestic hot water demand while also substantially reducing carbon emissions.
