Solar panels convert solar energy into heat. Commercially available flat plate collectors convert up to 95 percent of light into energy.
After solar energy has been converted into heat in the collectors, it is transmitted by the system of pipes through solar fluid into the hot water tank. The heat exchanger transfers the energy of the solar fluid to the water in the tank. Now hot water can be used at your request, even when the sun is not shining.
With a solar system, you can save up to 65 percent of your energy costs for heating hot water. Facilities that use solar energy to support space heating can save about 20 to 30 percent of their energy needs annually.
Advantages of using solar thermal energy:
- inexhaustible supply of solar energy,
- Solar energy is free,
- No harmful CO2 emissions,
- Can be integrated into existing installation systems,
- Reduced impact of rising energy prices.
