There has never been a better time to install solar thermal energy

Did you know one of the big six energy providers in the UK has just announced it will raise standard tariff electricity prices by 15% from 16 March, and gas prices by 4.8%? (You can read the full story at The Guardian).

With the latest solutions in solar panels, and the energy prices constantly increasing, it seems to be the best time to consider solar thermal panels.

Why solar thermal?

Find out here some more reasons!

Solar thermal energy is the use of solar energy to produce heat. It uses the sun’s energy, rather than fossil fuels, to generate low-cost, environmentally friendly thermal energy.

Have you ever gotten into your car after it has been parked in the sun on a hot summer day? Solar thermal energy works in the same way except that the heat generated is put to practical use to heat water or space heating.

In addition, by using a solar thermal system:

  • You reduce your energy bills.
  • You make an effective contribution in preserving the environment by reducing CO2 emissions.

How do solar thermal collectors work?

The solar collectors absorb the sun’s rays, convert them to heat and transfer the heat to a heat-transfer fluid. The heat-transfer fluid is then pumped into a heat exchanger located inside the water storage tank where it heats the water.

Thanks to the latest innovations in discreet in-roof panels, CUPA PIZARRAS has launched the first and only roof solar collectors in natural slate. With a range suiting all construction systems, THERMOSLATE® solar collectors are completely undetectable once installation is complete.

Waterproofing, strength, durability, versatility, thermal inertia… These are some of the advantages that make slate an unbeatable material, reinvented as THERMOSLATE® to contribute to more natural use of solar thermal energy.

THERMOSLATE® roof solar collectors are the only solar system to use the properties of natural slate, converting sunlight to energy to produce heating, hot water or for pool heating.
