Solar Hot Water

The best carbon reduction of any renewable technology

Hot water
from sunshine

Solar Thermal (Hot Water) systems are suitable for homeowners or businesses with a high hot water demand and can supply up to 70% of your annual hot water needs.

In the UK they work everywhere, all year round; from Scotland to Cornwall, even on cloudy days.

Why choose Solar Thermal?

  • Produces between 50% – 70% of your hot water
  • Works well with other renewable systems
  • Biggest carbon reduction per square meter
  • Relatively low cost and simple to install
  • Generates a tax-free income from the RHI

How Solar Thermal makes a difference

The government has created a scheme called the Renewable Heat Incentive, which determines how much money you are paid for using Solar Thermal to heat your water instead of fossil fuels. This is guaranteed for 7 years.

How Solar Thermal works

Solar Thermal, installed on your roof, works by concentrating heat from the sun so it is able to get up to extremely high temperatures.  This heat is transferred to your hot water cylinder, providing you with the majority of your hot water needs.

Is my property suitable?

Properties most likely to benefit from Solar Thermal have a high hot water demand and may be dependent on oil or LPG. Solar Thermal may also be an attractive option if roof space is too restrictive for Solar PV.

Solar Thermal combines well with other renewable heating technologies, when using a thermal store.

Question mark

Plates or tubes?

We offer Solar Thermal systems either as evacuated tubes, or flat plates, which are installed on your roof.

Our independence means we can select the most appropriate Solar Thermal system for your property and your requirements.
