What is solar hot water?

Solar hot water makes use of the planet’s greatest energy source: the sun. And what's more, this energy is free! Tapping into this underused resource is relatively simple, requiring the installation of a two panel solar kit and a new hot water cylinder suitable for solar energy. The panels then work along side your heating system to provide between 50-70% of your annual hot water, saving you money and making your home more environmentally friendly at the same time.

Is solar suitable for me?

If you currently have an airing cupboard with a hot water cylinder within it, then solar hot water could be a viable option for your home.

Are There Any Grants Available To Me?
Grants are available from The Low Carbon Buildings Programme and are applied for by the customer. In addition, Worcester Bosch offer up to £350 cash back during promotional periods.

Do I need planning permission?

Planning permission should be sought from your local authority so call the planning department to find out what you need to do. Planning permission is more likely to be needed in conservation areas and listed buildings and should always be checked before undertaking any work.

Solar Heating

Worcester Greenskies solar panels harness the power in both direct and diffused sunlight, converting the energy into heat, to produce hot water for the home.

The solar panels have been designed as a complement to existing heating systems which use a store of hot water in a cylinder. The existing cylinder is exchanged for a cylinder with two heat exchanger coils; one from the boiler in the property and a second from the solar panels.

The Worcester Greenskies FK240 Solar Panels are an ideal 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 with solar system provides a highly efficient system to give heating and hot water comfort. A typical well sized solar system should provide around 50% 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.

Would solar be suitable for my business?

If you currently have a business unit with a hot water cylinder providing your staff with hot water, then solar would certainly save you money. As most businesses heat their water via an electrical immersion heater, switching to solar could make the savings even greater.

Planning permission requirements should be checked via a phone call to your local authority, whilst grants and promotional periods from Worcester Bosch would still apply.
