Solar hot water

Synopsis 

Solar hot water works well in buildings that have significant roof area to locate the solar collectors. A solar hot water system should provide between 40 and 60 percent of your hot water needs. Solar hot water systems come with electric or gas boosters to provide the rest of your hot water needs. Solar hot water systems use solar collectors (either solar panels or evacuated tubes) which absorb energy from the sun to heat water. The heated water is then stored in an insulated tank for when you need it. Typical applications in dairy and piggeries and accommodation for workers.
