Solar Power to create Energy & Hot Water

 

  

With the right solar system, you can power your home and create hot water in one of the most efficient, cost-effective and environment-friendly ways possible.

 

Photo Voltaic Panels

Photo voltaic (PV) cells capture the sun's energy and convert it into electricity to power your home and run household appliances.

You need a sunny 5m2 roof space or an area on the ground to install a frame, that faces east / south / west and gets direct sunlight for most of the day. You’ll also need space for a larger, or second, hot water cylinder and an existing boiler that’s compatible with your new system.
