Why Solartwin solar heating systems are great!


  • DTI SMART award winners!Solar energy technology need not be clunky or complicated.
  • Solar energy – or solar equipment? Which of these are you seeking?
  • Solar technology history or solar innovation? It’s your green heating choice!

This solar information section on why we think Solartwin is the best solar heating technology for your solar RHI project contains several challenging ideas about solar panels. Our aim is to constructively challenge the numerous outdated traditional views and myths which still exist concerning solar technology.

We have written this solar information section because in our experience, far too many people end up being sold (rather than choosing) old fashioned solar equipment which costs too much to run and to maintain. The ideal solar panel is far from this. At Solartwin we seek to develop perfect solar panels in a wide and sustainable context.

Sustainable solar energy (unfortunately there are also less sustainable kinds of solar energy technology – using big mains pumps) is what we want to offer you at Solartwin. We regard collecting solar energy as neatly as possible as a challenge – in technical elegance and energy efficiency.

We aim to give you the best solar panels, and the best service and reliable and accurate information in solar panels, both what they can do and cannot do well. Here’s a brief summary of Solartwin’s unique benefits, features and environmental credentials.

We invite you to phone or email us – to challenge any of these claims.

Value for money plus the widest possible concept of optimising the environmental efficiency of solar heating are what drive our solar design team. That’s why we believe that Solartwin solar water heating means green living – at its best. Zero carbon solar thermal is the future.

In a 2001 DTI report, called Side by Side Testing of Eight Solar Water Heating Systems, solar heating systems were tested and not all solar panels were found to be equal, although most delivered similar amounts of net carbon savings. In terms of total sustainability, as judged by carbon clawback, which is a touchstone of sustainability in solar water heating systems, Solartwin was by far the best performing solar water system – by a very big margin – and evacuated tubes were identified out as the worst performing solar systems on this key parameter. The carbon clawback averages were: Solartwin: 0% carbon clawback, Other flat plates: 17% carbon clawback and evacuated tubes: 23% carbon clawback. It is obviously not advisable to buy solar panels which use electricity at all. “I do not want to heat my home’s hot water with solar panels which use any mains electricity at all.” is the decision of many Solartwin customers.

People who do not choose Solartwin typically negate the carbon savings of their solar water heating system by one year for every five years that they use them. This is because their solar heating systems are plugged into mains electricity and are using it up – day and night.

While you go out to work, your Solartwin, solar hot water system purrs away earning you money and helping to save the planet whenever it can, all day. Here’s hoping that you will enjoy your visit to the Solartwin website, and that you will find it both interesting and useful. Please read on.
