About solar energy and renewable energy in Ireland
not always easy for home owners and home builders in Ireland to find their way
through the maze of ways to use solar energy and new solar
technology. What's the difference between a heat pipe and a
flat-plate collector? Which solar system is best for my low-energy
house? What does a solar circulation system look like? Answers to
these questions about Photovoltaic,

Solar Energy for Hot Water and Heating
The Sun supplies us with an enormous daily energy potential that exceeds
primary energy consumption, by 80 times in Ireland, for example. This
energy source is virtually inexhaustible and is also at our disposal for
the foreseeable future (400million years give or take a few).
solar energy has more potential than most people realise. The
solar thermal collector will harness the suns energy to produce
warm water. A proper designed solar thermal system can reduce the
heating bill by up to 30% considering that the average family will
spend €40,000.- over the
next 30 years just for heating there homes at current energy prices.
It is a wise investment by installing a solar thermal system into your home. Look at it as a pension plan, only it is a lot better than your standard pension plan, the more hot water you use the faster the system will pay for itself and it is better for everybody.
A heating system that will pay for itself ?
Yes, as time goes by a solar heating system will save you more money than you paid for in the beginning and "produces" more energy than it took to manufacture the solar panels.
Don't always look at the money end of it, you also help your environment and you can tell that to your children.
Ireland's oldest solar
Wonder if the warranty is still on it?
A more modern solar system
Will it last as long as NewGrange? NO but is defiantly the best thing to install for producing hot water for free.
