With over 7,000+ Installs in Ireland, we are the most trusted solar installer in Ireland.
Environmentally friendly, this kind of energy is renewable, and new uses of solar thermal energy are being developed, such as solar thermal panels. The future of solar energy is bright. Solar Thermal Energy is the use of solar energy to produce heat. This isn’t a complicated procedure. Most of us are probably familiar with the process and see it in our everyday lives.
Have you tried to touch an object after it has been laid under the sun on a hot summer day? Solar thermal energy works in the same way except that the heat generated is put to practical use to heat water or other mediums.
During this energy conversion and exchange the glycol solution is pumped through the water storage tank where it then heats the water. This is a continuous process; and in line with the sun’s solar radiation, you will be provided with hot water.
Why Solar Thermal?
Solar Thermal energy is an invention that reduces your bills and helps the environment, something that everyone can be thankful for. Our customers can vouch for us! Besides the fact that it offers endless renewable energy, it also has the following benefits:
Hot water at your finger tips: The system works throughout the year although it will require the support of a boiler in the duller winter season.
Saves you money: Providing up to 60% of your hot water needs, it will directly offset your bills by that 60% figure.
Saves the environment: Solar thermal energy helps reduce the emission of CO2 and therefore protects the environment.
Activ8 Solar Thermal Panels: The best panels, made by the best!
Our panels are manufactured byGREENoneTecin Austria to our specific requirements, meaning they are made especially for the Irish climate. This relationship allowed us to design, test and improve our panels for each and every Irish roof.

Step-by-Step Solar Workings
Solar Collectors On Roof
The collectors capture & absorb the sun’s radiation.
The heat is then conducted to the fluid flowing through the collector.
The hot fluid from the collector is circulated via flexible stainless steel pipes by a pump through to a coil inside the insulated tank.
Tank & Coil
The coil conducts the heat and the resulting hot water flows from the outlet valve.
The hot water is delivered to wherever it is needed throughout the house.
