The Renewable Heat Incentive RHI is a government funded scheme designed to encourage commercial and domestic clients to install renewable heating systems. It is designed to help reduce heat energy bills and try and help Northern Ireland reach their target of increasing renewable heat use to 10% by 2020. By installing Solar Thermal panels we can vastly reduce your hot water costs by up to 100%. The NI Government run, Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI), means that with your Solar Thermal panels you will earn 8.8p/kWhr.

Solar thermal panels contain liquid that circulates through special panels and is heated by sunlight, this then passes through a coil in the water tank which in turn heats the water stored in the tank. With continually rising gas, electric and oil fuel prices and a need to reduce CO2 emmissions, many people are now turning towards solar energy as an economical and environmentally friendly alternative to traditional heating systems. Solar roof panel systems are installed with minimum disruption - They can be linked into your existing conventional heating system.
Once installed, solar energy can provide up to 60% of your hot water needs throughout the year for free!
For this type of solar energy we have to use a larger and different type of cylinder to the traditional one used in the home as there is a need to have more heat storing capacity for the solar heating panels. A twin coil cylinder is needed for energy generated by solar heating panels as one coil will be receiving the heat from the collector on the roof and the other coil is used to supply heat from your other main heat source when solar energy (i.e. sunlight) is insufficient.
