What is a solar thermal panel?
While solar PV panels use the energy from the sun to generate electricity, solar thermal panels use the sun to heat up water. As such, solar PV panels and solar thermals are two very different technologies.
Solar thermal uses free renewable energy from the sun which, just like the solar PV panels, will help you save money and reduce your carbon footprint.
Joule Solar Thermal Systems
Just like solar PV panels, a solar thermal system needs the sun as the main energy source. Therefore, the optimal position to be situated is somewhere with direct sunlight for the most part of the day.
However, they don’t necessarily need to be placed on a roof. Other possible places could be on a flat roof or hang from a wall, as long as it gets direct sunlight.
The most important benefit is that solar energy is a 100% renewable energy source. We will always have solar energy.
Solar thermal panels require little maintenance and only occasional planned servicing. You only have to keep them relatively clean.
Acapella Evacuated Tube System
The Joule Acapella Solar system’s unique tube design ensures a very high zero-loss collector efficiency figure of 85% based on the absorber. The unique method of fixing the tubes into the collector results in a significantly lower heat loss coefficient of 1.529w/m²K.
The collectors easy to install frame ensures that the collector is securely fixed and mounted onto the roof every time.
Navitas In Roof System
The sleek Joule Navitas on-roof solar system is designed and manufactured to work in Northern European climates.
The collector’s black finish makes it an attractive addition to any roof. The unique patented ventilation system ensures the collector provides maximum output while reducing heat loss from inside the collector.
