Solar Domestic Hot Water

Evacuated tube solar panels produce domestic solar hot water. For the average household one solar panel approx 2.25m2 area is sufficient to produce domestic hot water for the majority of the year. Larger or multiple solar panels systems can be used for larger cylinders, hot tubs and swimmng pool applications. The Navitron solar system can be used with both vented and un-vented cylinders.
A typical installation will include a solar panel, twin coil cylinder, solar panel controllers, expansion vessel, pump, valves, antifreeze and pipe insulation. Navitron also supply flat plate solar panels, pump stations plus many other solar ancillaries and fittings for all types of solar installations. The FAQ section is an ideal place to start designing your Navitron solar system.

Solar Photovoltaic (PV)

Solar electricity systems capture the sun’s energy using photovoltaic (PV) cells. The cells convert the sunlight into electricity, which can be used to run household appliances and lighting. PV cells don’t need direct sunlight to work – you can even generate some electricity on a cloudy day. PV cells are panels you can attach to your roof or walls. Each cell is made from one or two layers of semiconducting material, usually silicon. When light shines on the cell it creates an electric field across the layers. The stronger the sunshine, the more electricity is produced.

PV cells come in a variety of shapes and colours, from grey “solar tiles” that look like roof tiles to panels and transparent cells that you can use on conservatories and glass. The strength of a PV cell is measured in kilowatt peak (kWp). That’s the amount of energy the cell generates in full sunlight.

In partnership with our specialist PV company Tess UK we are leaders in the design and installation of PV solutions ranging from a simple terrace house to a sports stadiums.
