Typically using one or two roof-mounted panels, these panels transfer the sun’s energy into heating hot water in your cylinder. The technology is well tried and tested and is very reliable – when the sun shines, you get hot water! Even better, as a renewable technology, you should receive the RHI payments for 7 years which will typically repay the cost of the system.
Benefits of Solar Thermal energy:
- Renewable Energy Source
- Reduces Electricity Bills
- Low Maintenance Costs
- Takes up less space than Solar PV panels
