Solar Thermal Panels

How much money can you make from having solar thermal panels fitted to your home?

There is more than one way to heat your hot water with solar!

Solar thermal panels are designed to heat the water in your hot water tank but for houses with a combi boiler fitted extra modification will be required. It is also possible to heat your hot water tank with standard electrical solar panels using a device known as an Immersun.

What is Solar Thermal?

Standard Solar Thermal installation

standard solar thermal panels

Solar water heating systems for your home come in two types thermal flat plate panels and evacuated tubes. Solar thermal flat plate panels can be fitted in with the roofing tiles much like a loft window; this is a great option if you are looking to put a new roof on your property. Evacuated tube panels are however more efficient than flat panels an can be fitted to either standard roofs, flat roofs or even a south facing wall if necessary.

Your solar water heating system will also include the fitting of a water pump unit for the closed anti-freeze filled system that flows through the solar panels and heats the water stored in the special water storage cylinder. A special type of water cylinder will be installed to heat the water, this has two heating options available primarily the solar heating system but also it will be attached to your boiler to bring the water up to the temperature set on your thermostat.


Combi-boiler Solar Thermal installation

If you currently have a combination boiler there are some additional parts required to complete the system, but all of your options can be thoroughly explained during our onsite inspection.

Why Thinkers Are Losers!

From August 2011 until 31 March 2014 the UK government had introduced a scheme that made one-off payments to householders to help them buy renewable heating technologies – solar thermal panels, heat pumps and biomass boilers. This scheme was known as the Renewable Heat Premium Payment and many successful landlords and homeowners made use of this free money to upgrade their homes.
RHPP would have saved you £600 off the cost of installing a solar thermal kit to your home but sadly you have missed this opportunity. However in April 2014 the Government introduced a new scheme for homeowners and landlords which was previously only available to businesses, this new scheme is known as the Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI).


Technology Tariff
Air-source heat pumps 7.3p/kWh
Ground and water-source heat pumps 18.8p/kWh
Biomass-only boilers and biomass pellet stoves with integrated boilers 12.2p/kWh
Solar thermal panels (flat plate and evacuated tube for hot water only) 19.2 p/kWh

The RHI tariff table above shows that solar thermal panels will earn you more than any of the other renewable heat sources in quarterly payments from the Government. These payments will be paid for 7 years from the date of installation and are available to home owners, private and social landlords and individual self-build projects but not new build developments.
This is why thinkers are losers, while they were 'thinking about it' they lost out on the RHPP payment and continue to pay the ever increasing prices to heat their homes to their gas suppliers, soon they will also miss out on the RHI quarterly payments also.
Fortunately you are not one of these kinds of people, you are here now taking positive steps forward into upgrading your home, increasing its value and taking advantage of these Government schemes while they are still available, now all you need to do to take advantage of this today is get in touch with us so that we can make a quick assessment of your property and help answer any questions you may have regarding the scheme.

Gas £60 275kg
Oil £90 350kg
Coal £80 610kg
Electricity £70 490kg
LPG £130 325kg
 

Earnings

You may be able to receive payments for the heat you generate from a solar water heating system through the government's Renewable Heat Incentive. 

Household size

RHI income per year

2 person household £190
3 person household £260
4 person household £330
5 person household £425
6 person household £460

Estimated Earnings: If a family of five that lived in a house with gas central heating converted to a solar thermal hot water system they would save approximately £420 on their gas bill and earn approx. £2,975 in RHI payments a total of £3,395. The system really does pay for itself!

IMMERSUN - SOLAR PV WATER HEATER

IMMERSUN takes any electricity not used by the house and sends it to the immersion heater in the hot water cylinder. This is really smart and will save you having to heat your hot water, which will save you money. The payback varies on usage, it is approx 3 years (+), obviously if you are on oil or just electricity then this system will save you a fortune and pay back much quicker. If you have a Solar PV or a Wind Turbine then you need the IMMERSUN. IMMERSUN monitors the electricity which is about to be exported to the grid and diverts it to your hot water immersion heater. It does this automatically so no need to turn appliances on and off to make use of your spare electricity. If the load from the house increases, eg.the washing machine is turned on, the IMMERSUN will reduce the amount sent to heat water to help you maintain independence from the grid. The IMMRSUN measures and records energy applied to the immersion heater. As only the renewable energy is counted this is effectively saved energy. You can view savings made for today, the week, the month, the year or total savings.
