Why use Solar in the UK
Just a few reasons to use Solar:
“The total amount of energy used by man in one year is the equivalent to the energy delivered by the Sun to the surface of the Earth in just 40 minutes”
The UK receives up to 60% of the solar radiation level of the equator so a solar water heating system can be very effective even in Northern Europe.
One of the easiest ways of harvesting this energy is by collecting it on the roofs of houses and storing it in hot water.
Solar water heating can reduce your hot water heating bills by up to 70%.
The running costs are very low as the energy has to be carried just a few metres, not 1000’s of miles.
Hertfordshire uses more hot water that any other county!
