Commercial Solar Thermal
Produce hot water using solar thermal collectors
Solar thermal panels generate hot water using the sun's radiation. Thermal panels (known as 'collectors') usually mounted on a roof transfer heat using a water/antifreeze mix into a hot water cylinder. Once installed, the system provides virtually free hot water for a large part of the year.
A meter on the system records the heat generated and a payment is made under the RHI (Renewable Heat Incentive). The payments are very generous for 'early adopters', so if your business has a need for quantities of hot water, this could be a valuable investment and also an income generator.
A well designed solar thermal system could provide up to two-thirds of your annual hot water needs.
You might be particularly interested in this technology if you:
- Have a large hot water requirement.
- Have a gym, or similar club, with showers.
- Have a car wash.
- Have haulage business with equipment that needs regular wash-downs.
- Run a nursing or care home.
- Run a campsite or holiday park.
- Own a farm with equipment that needs regular wash-downs.
- Have an indoor swimming pool.
