Solar Heating & Hot Water
Solar thermal energy is the best known and most popular form of domestic renewable energy.
The sun's energy is collected by flat plate collectors or evacuated tubes (usually on the roof) which are orientated towards the sun in order to warm the property's water.
Manufacturers state than an average property should receive around 60 - 70% of the property's total hot water demands from solar thermal systems.
Contrary to common belief, a lot of solar energy can still be gained from solar collectors even on cloudy days.

A typical well sized solar system should provide around 50-70% of the domestic hot water requirements of a home, representing a very worthwhile saving on hot water heating costs. The remaining hot water requirement is provided by the boiler
The Worcester Greenskies solar panels are a perfect partner to the new range of condensing Greenstar regular and system boilers, with different models available in both oil and gas, which require a separate cylinder for the storage of hot water. When used together a Greenstar boiler and solar system provide a highly efficient system to give heating and hot water comfort
