Generate Up To 70% Of Your Hot Water Needs From Free Solar Energy

As the cleanest, most abundant and easily accessible form of energy on earth, start your sustainable energy approach with solar energy.

By integrating a high-performance solar thermal system, solar energy is used to heat or preheat your home’s domestic hot water. You can offset your heating costs by as much as 70% and reduce your CO2 emissions by up to 1 ton/year.

How Much Can You Save?

The amount of available solar radiation is dependent on the time of year and your location. The solar coverage rate measures the average amount of energy covered by a solar system in a year. In northern climates, solar coverage can still be as high as 70%. In the summer months a high-performance solar system typically covers almost all the energy required to heat domestic hot water.

How it works

How Does A Solar Thermal System Work?

Solar energy is absorbed by the dark coloured absorber and transferred to copper pipes that contain a fluid.

The pump station circulates the solar heated fluid back to the hot water tank.

Throughout the day the solar system gradually raises the temperature in the hot water tank.

A backup energy source (electric, gas etc) ensures hot water supply when solar output is not able to fully meet demand.

The system can be a single tank (as shown) or a dedicated solar tank can provide pre-heated water to a main hot water tank.
