With gas, electric and oil costs increasing, the provision of domestic hot water within a dwelling or business premises is getting more expensive – and that's before you've considered the environmental impact of accessing fossil fuel supplies, or the fact that they will run out at some point in the future.

Solar thermal technology can help to reduce bills and reliance on non-renewable sources of energy by pre-heating water within the domestic hot water system, which means less energy is used to bring it up to the set temperature required.

There are also some financial incentives for solar thermal panels. The Government's Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) has been extended to include homes, and offers a tariff to those who install certain types of renewables on their homes. Only some solar thermal panels on the market are registered under the Microgeneration Certification Scheme (MCS), and an accredited product has to be installed by an accredited installer to qualify for the RHI payments. These payments only run for 7 years, but are intended to pay for the additional capital costs of the system, over and above that of a traditional hot water system, during this time.

The benefits of solar thermal panels are as follows:
