Using solar panels is a great way to generate clean and renewable electricity to power remote appliances, or even the average home.
The main form of solar cells in existence today is solar hot water panels. Solar water heating systems allow the use of free heat from the sun to warm domestic hot water.

The benefits of solar water heating

  • Hot water throughout the year: the system works all year round, though you'll need to heat the water further with a boiler or immersion heater during the winter months.
  • Cut your bills: sunlight is free, so once you've paid for the initial installation your hot water costs will be reduced.
  • Cut your carbon footprint: solar hot water is a green, renewable heating system and doesn't release any harmful carbon dioxide or other pollutants

Maintenance

Most solar water heating systems come with a 5-10 year warranty and require little maintenance. Every year your solar panels should be thoroughly checked for signs of damage in-keeping with the warranty.
