Solar Thermal Panels

Solar Thermal panel systems are designed to provide hot water for your property.

Solar Thermal technology is low maintenance and designed to save you money year after year


Depending on how you use it, a well-designed and properly sized solar thermal system can help you make a substantial saving on your bills. You can expect it to provide:

  • 80-90% of your hot water in the summer
  • 40-50% of your hot water in the spring and autumn
  • 10-15% of your hot water in the winter

You’ll make the biggest saving if your hot water is currently heated by electricity, followed by oil and then gas. However, the actual savings you’ll make on your bills will depend on how you use your hot water. The best way to find out what you could save is to talk it through with one of our advisors.

The Government’s Renewable Heat Incentive

Alongside the considerable savings you make on your hot water costs, you can also benefit from quarterly payments for 7 years from the Governments Renewable Heat Incentive. Currently set at 19.51p per Kwh for the amount of green, renewable heat your system produces. See here for OF GEM’s current guidelines RHI. RHI Guidelines


There are numerous benefits to installing solar water heating:

  • One of the cheapest and most established of all the renewable energy technologies
  • Designed to work alongside the majority of heating systems
  • Provides roughly half of your hot water requirements across the year and during the summer months they can contribute towards nearly all of your hot water needs. During the winter months you may need to top up the system with your primary heat source e.g a boiler.
