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!
