Solar Thermal Collectors

Solar Thermal

Using the sun's light as a source of energy is nothing new – solar panel technology has been around for more than 30 years. 

Up until recently, though, solar thermal systems haven't been an economically viable alternative as a hot water supply. However, significant advancement in solar thermal panel technology has been made in recent years which has kickstarted a renewable heating alternative that is now more than suitable for people's hot water needs. These solar heating systems have evolved into a tried and tested technology, and a highly economic and environmentally friendly alternative to providing properties with hot water.

Our solar thermal systems can make significant contributions to your hot water needs (approximately 30-50% depending on usage), thus reducing the cost to you and the strain on the environment.

Thermal Earth’s solar thermal systems are compatible with most people’s homes. Simply contact us for advice or arrange for a no obligation quotation, we can then advise you on a system to meet your exact needs.

Solar panel systems are not only restricted to houses they can also be used on out-buildings or even swimming pools.

Payback from installation of our solar panels all depends on the type of fuel replaced and how much hot water is utilised. Also installation for Solar Hot Water Systems are eligible for the Renewable Heat Incentive. What can be guaranteed though is that Thermal Earth’s solar solutions are protected against future hikes in fuel prices. The sun’s energy is free to us all, so let’s make the most of it.


  • The UK receives solar radiation equivalent to the output of 1,000 power stations.
  • An average household’s yearly hot water supply requires around 3,000 kWh
  • Over 1,000 kWh of energy is received every year on each square metre of surface.
  • On a cloudy day we still receive energy from the sun through indirect sunlight.
