Solar and copper?
Solar and copper? Solar installations also profit from copper as a material. Solar panels absorb the energy from the sun and convert it into thermal energy to heat water and support central heating. At the heart of the solar panel there are absorbers made of coated copper. With the right hot water tank, savings in normal heating energy can be up to 33 percent. That is enough to cover all heating and hot water requirements with solar energy into the winter months.
What is solar?
Solar thermal energy is ecological and sustainble. The heat produced is transferred from the solar panels through a heat exchanger to a solar storage tank filled with water. The heated water is available day and night for hot water supply to kitchens and bathrooms and for heating purposes.
The Government has a number of schemes that apply to homeowners. The Renewable Heat Premium Payment scheme is a government scheme that gives money to householders to help them buy renewable heating technologies. The Renewable Heat Incentive and Green Deal are schemes that are planned. For the latest info check Government websites.
