Hot water from the Sun

Solar Thermal Collector (Flat Panel)

Heating water represents the biggest single source of greenhouse gas emissions in an average household.

30% of total greenhouse gases households produce is due to water heating. Solar water heaters can dramatically reduce energy bills without any environmental impacts. Installing solar hot water also reduces our dependency on fossil fuels.


Hot water and household energy usage

Electric and gas hot water systems account for approximately 20% of a household’s greenhouse gas emissions.

The technology for solar thermal water heaters is entirely different to a photo-voltaic off grid or grid connect system.
For example, solar heaters use a flat plate with collector panels or evacuated tubes to absorb the heat from sunlight and then raise the temperature of the water.

Solar thermal hot water explained

Flat plate collectors work on copper pipes running through a glass covered collector, often connected to a water storage tank on the roof. The hot water can then thermo-siphon itself in and out of the tank, thus heating the water.
