Did you know Australia has the world’s highest solar radiation at 58m petajoules per year, approximately 10,000 times larger than its total energy consumption?1
So, what if we said you could use the sun to heat water for showers, washing and other activities?
With solar hot water, you can. Plus, enjoy the extra benefits of:
- Significant savings on your hot water energy use
- Reducing your carbon emissions to do your bit for the environment; and
- Potentially increase the value of your home
In this article, we will explore these three key benefits in greater detail, and debunk some key myths associated with solar hot water. However, before we do, we will explain the difference between solar hot water and solar power (also known as solar photovoltaic or PV) to give you more of an idea of how they work.
