Renewables: Solar Hot Water

Meet 50% of your annual hot water needs using the power of the sun.

Solar Hot Water panels, or ‘Solar Thermal’, transfer the heat of the sun into the water that you use at home, so you don’t have to use as much gas or electricity to heat it up. In summer, these systems can provide up to 100% of your hot water needs, although in winter this is will be much less.

Maintenance & Guarantees

Solar Hot Water systems are typically low maintenance. When installed by an MCS Certified installer, they will come with a 10-year warranty on the panels, and a 5-year workmanship warranty.

Some installers offer an annual service check, and the system should have a thorough check every 5 years.

Financial Incentives

Sometimes, solar hot water systems are covered by goverment grants. Visit our Financial Support page to see if any current grants are running.
