Solar thermal panels can be installed on any sloping roof that faces in a generally southerly direction. They will operate effectively even when the sun isn’t shining, absorbing the sun’s energy to heat water that runs through tubes or channels below the surface of the panels. This water helps to heat the domestic heating and hot water supply, reducing the running
costs of a central heating boiler.
- Could supply up to 60% of a family home’s hot water needs
- Could achieve a 50% reduction in CO2 emissions
- The electricity generated means you need less electricity from the grid, resulting in cost savings
