Hot Water from the Sun

As well as creating electricity, solar energy can also be used to heat water. Either flat panels or evacuated tubes are filled with a mixture of water and anti-freeze which is heated by the sun and then pumped through a coil in the hot water tank to heat up the water there.

On average, every home spends 20-25% of its annual energy bills on water heating. In the UK a well designed solar water heating system can provide almost all the hot water for a home during the summer months and on average around 50-60% of requirements year round.
