We are a strong collective!
A solar water heating system, also known as a solar thermal system, uses sunlight to heat water for domestic or commercial purposes. Since this technology relies on a clean source of energy, switching to solar water heating will lead to a reduction of your domestic carbon footprint.
There are different varieties of solar thermal systems: you can choose a flat plate or an evacuated tube collector, mounted in your roof or wall. Generally the system is incorporated to your existing hot water system.
