Solar water heating
Solar heating is the most widely used small scale renewable energy technology and can be used for many applications. The solar panels collect free energy from the sun and transfer it to water.
The UK has a good solar resource, especially in the South West and modern solar panels can produce useful amounts of hot water, even on cloudy and cold days. A solar heating system can provide up to 70% of a household's annual requirement of hot water and bearing in mind, that in a well insulated, modern property hot water can account for two thirds of the energy consumption; this can reduce your bills considerably.
