Solar water heating (known as solar thermal) systems capture the free heat from the sun and use it to heat up water for use in the home. It’s a simple process:
- panels on your roof absorb heat from the sun – they are known as the collector
- the water in the panels heats up
- this hot water is pumped through a coil in your cylinder
- which transfers the heat to the water in the cylinder
Want to produce both hot water and electricity from the sun?
You might want to consider installing Solar Photovoltaic-Thermal, or PV-T for short.
PV-T is a hybrid solar panel combining the functionality of solar thermal collectors and solar PV in one panel. The panels create not only electricity but also produce hot water for use in the home. Two functions from one investment!
Our low carbon hybrid solar technology produces both electricity and hot water from one slimline, attractive panel. By choosing hybrid Solar PV-T you can generate 4x more usable energy than a conventional PV panel, with no compromise on reliability, style or ease of installation. And it’s a quality product, manufactured here in the UK.
