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. 

Renewable Heat Incentive

The Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) means that you are able to receive payments for the heat that you generate using a Solar Hot Water system.

To find out more about the RHI, there is lots of information on the Ofgem website. Also, you can use the Department of Energy and Climate Change’s payment calculator to find out how much you are likely to earn on your property if you install renewable heat.
