New home for solar thermal next to BenQ PV

Posted by: In Solar Thermal

The large solar thermal collector on this house near Chesham had been in residence for many years. Formerly part of a swimming pool heating system elsewhere in the county, we decided it needed to move again to make room for a smart array of high performance BenQ 325W PV panels. But this time it only moved a couple of meters to allow the PV panels unshaded access to the sun whilst its generous proportions meant that the shade from the dormer windows wouldn’t be too damaging. We think the collection of panels looks nicely balanced and ready to supply a huge amount of the household’s energy this summer.
