Solar Thermal

Solar Water Heating and Solar Thermal systems are possibly the most commonly installed form of renewable energy system and are one of the most cost effective ways to reduce your utility bills at the same time as helping the environment.

Fundamentally, a Solar Thermal system comprises of a solar panel unit or bank of evacuated tubes designed to convert sunlight into heat. This heat can be used to heat domestic hot water or make a contribution towards your central heating at the same time as generating a good income from the Renewable Heat Incentive. Solar Thermal collectors are 85% efficient with no moving parts, apart from a central pump, so they offer almost maintenance free service (annual health check recommended) and should have a long life of 30 plus years. Solar Thermal panels are less affected by shading than their electricity producing counterparts.

Aside from physical roof area for the collector itself, the only additional change to your current water heating arrangement is that your cylinder will require a solar rated coil in it. If your current cylinder is in good condition, it maybe that an external heat exchanger unit could be retrofitted to provide a similar benefit.

All of our Solar Thermal collectors are MCS or Solar Keymark and qualify for the Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) with payments of around £260 (typical 3-person household) every year for 7-years and additional fuel savings of around £90 a year (based upon oil fired system) though actual savings will vary from household to household.
