Many people believe that solar collectors only work in the summer, however this type of free energy is available throughout the year. From May to September, solar thermal could produce 100% of the energy required for heating your domestic water (see below). Grant collectors operate not just with direct sunlight, but also diffused sunlight, so they even work on cloudy days. On average Grant Solar can provide up to 70% of your hot water needs per year, for free!
Solar irradiation in the UK and Ireland This diagram shows the total average solar radiation falling on 1m2 surface, inclined at 30° to the horizontal, measured in kilowatthours. The average property requires approximately3,000 kWh per year for domestic water heating.

Why Solar Thermal?
Solar thermal is a clean and sustainable method of providing homes with hot water. As with all Grant products the technology is simple but highly efficient, providing an environmentally responsible and cost effective alternative to traditional energy sources. The basic principle is easy to explain. If you leave a garden hose on the ground exposed to the sun, in a short time the water within will become hot. Solar thermal collectors work in very much the same way, only more efficiently. Roof-mounted solar collectors are connected to a system containing a special glycol/water solution. This heated fluid is circulated from the panel to a cylinder where the heat is transferred to produce hot water. Typically, a solar thermal system can save you up to 70% on your annual hot water heating costs – so it’s good for the planet and good for your wallet too!
