Greenheart Energy Ltd

Greenheart have been installing solar thermal systems since 1999 and have seen the market and technology develop.

We have experience in working in a number of different system configurations, including domestic systems, community schemes and industrial and commercial applications. Greenheart have also installed a number of different solar thermal technologies, including flat plate collectors, evacuated tubes, twin coil cylinders, thermal stores and industrial systems.

Even with the unpredictable climate of the UK, you can still expect a well designed solar thermal system to provide 70% of your hot water requirements. Unlike photovoltaics, the energy from a solar thermal system cannot be exported and will need to be used on-site in some form. As such it is important to design the system well so that in the summer months the system does not produce too much hot water.

Our previous solar thermal customers include Carillion PLC, University of Warwick, Friends of the earth, European Commission and Staffordshire County Council.
