Solar Water Heating Installation
This is a job in Croydon for the Trinity Baptist Church where they wanted a renewable energy to reduce the running costs of producing their hot water. The solution, although not year round was solar thermal. They have 3 separate cylinders for various areas around the church and I installed 3 No. 2 panel systems which will produce approx. 60% of their hot water needs.
The benefits of solar water heating
Hot water throughout the year. The system works all year round, though you'll need to heat the water further with a boiler or immersion heater during the winter months.
Reduced energy bills. Sunlight is free, so once you've paid for the initial installation your hot water costs will be reduced.
Lower carbon footprint. Solar hot water is a green, renewable heating system and can reduce your carbon dioxide emissions.
The church are now looking to install a fourth system as well as having requested a funded quotation for solar PV. Watch this space!
