Solar Thermal Energy

Solar Thermal renewable energy systems use energy from the sun to heat household water use.

Heat is collected from the sun and transferred to solar thermal collectors fitted on the house roof.  The solar thermal collectors can be fitted as evacuated tubes or flat plate collectors, which can either be fixed on the roof tiles or integrated into the roof.

Benefits of a solar thermal renewable energy system include reduced energy bills and reduced carbon dioxide emissions. By harnessing the sun’s energy, solar thermal systems can provide almost all the hot water for the home during the summer months and on average 50-60% year round. This renewable energy system also requires very little maintenance.

If the desired temperature is not reached by your solar thermal system an immersion or boiler can be used to make the water hotter.

Solar thermal installations can now benefit from the governments Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI). Similar to the existing tariff payment for solar panel renewable energy installations, solar thermal system owners will receive payments at a set rate per unit of renewable energy heat produced.
