SOLAR POWER GROWING THE VEG AND NOW HEATING THE WATER TOO – 2nd week in May 2014

Growing fresh food to do away with the need to import a tired version of the same thing is one way to cut down on the burning of fossil fuels. Installing solar water heating panels on the roof is another way to save using oil. It will take a few years before the cost of installation is made back on the savings from not having to buy oil. Given that oil prices will inevitably go up as peak oil production looms, the pay back period may be shorter than we might think.

  1. There are a good few renewable heating solutions currently on the market that can save money on heating your sanitary water. Solar panels are becoming ever more effective on heating water and saving money however air to water heat pumps can save you 70% on annual water heating bills and they also provide hot water all year round.
