Solar thermal power

70% of your water heating costs from the sun

In the UK, every square metre of land receives 800-1200kWh of solar thermal energy every year, whilst the average home here spends about 20-25% of their annual energy bills on water heating. A correctly designed solar hot water system can use the free energy from the sun to produce all your hot water requirements in the summer and provide up to 70% of hot water requirements over the year.

Solar thermal collectors work best when installed on a south-facing roof but can also be used in an east/west configuration.

Both the flat panel and evacuated tube solar collectors work best on a south-facing roof with an array on each side of the roof pitch if a south-facing roof is unavailable.
