Solar Thermal

Key Facts


Uses the natural rays of the sun to generate free hot water


Tax free income through Renewable Heat Incentive payments


Quick and easy to install a small number of panels


Increase the value of your home



Heating your water with a renewable energy (sunlight) qualifies you for RHI payments for seven years

Solar thermal systems are quick and easy to install into an existing heating system

The panels take up very little space on your roof and the system increases the value of your property by allowing future owners the luxury of free hot water

No need to gain planning permission unless you are in a conservation area or have a listed building

A Solar thermal installation captures the heat from the sun and uses it to heat up water for use in your business. It should provide most of your hot water from April to September, and make a worthwhile contribution in other months.


The system also allows you to take advantage of the Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) for 7 years. Solar thermal tubes will reduce your impact on the environment – the average domestic system reduces carbon dioxide emissions by up to one tonne per year depending of the fuel replaced. Well developed technology provides a large choice of equipment to suit many applications.


Solar thermal is easy to manage and maintain and in terms of roof space, the system only requires a relatively small number of panels. Plus an almost guaranteed increase in the value of your property, we would hope your solar thermal hot water system will last up to 35 years.

“Needless to say we are delighted with both the system, which has to date been trouble free, and its first years performance in what has been one of the worst dullest and wettest summers on record. The capital cost will be recovered in less than 6 years at current performance rates.”
