Solar Hot Water Systems are a great option to help dramatically reduce your energy costs. Heating water is a major energy user in most homes, consuming up to one-quarter of your annual energy supply.
With solar hot water systems, you can realise all of the benefits of free energy from the sun, and use/store this energy in your hot water storage tank. Infinite Energy offers two different types of systems: evacuated tubes and flat plate collectors.
Under the Small-scale Renewable Energy Scheme, solar hot water systems are entitled to a number of small-scale technology certificates (STCs). An STC is a calculation of how many megawatts of energy your solar hot water unit is expected to save over ten years, when compared to the electricity consumption of an equivalent electric water heater.
For example, a 400 Litre Apricus Tank is expected to produce approximately 46MwH of energy over 10 years. This means you are entitled to 46 STCs. STCs currently trade for around $38 each, which means you’d receive around $2,208 off the upfront cost of the unit.
