Like PV solar, for economic and environmental reasons solar water heating systems are becoming a popular option for home water heating in New Zealand, and are also beginning to feature in commercial and industrial applications.
In many New Zealand households, between 30% and 50% of energy costs can be attributed to heating water, and an effective and correctly installed solar water heating system can meet 50-70% of your hot water needs using the sun’s free energy. When the sun can’t heat enough water to meet your needs, an electric, gas or other booster connected to a solar water heater means you’ll always have hot water.
The QLDC do require consent for Thermal Solar panels and unfortunately there is no longer a government subsidy for installing these systems in your home, but the savings to be made on your electricity bill still make installing a solar hot water system a sensible investment.
