The document aims to explain the importance of timing for back-up heating in an easy-to-understand format, helping solar thermal customers to get the highest energy yield from their solar heating panels.
The recent Energy Saving Trust trial (here) found that poor timing of back-up heating was one of the major contributors to those households that achieved the lowest solar energy savings.
The STA Solar Handbook provides an insight into current changes taking place within the solar industry and in particular, the Association member’s developments and an overview of our Working Groups. This, second edition, covers the first phase of the Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) and the fast-track review of the Feed-in Tariffs (FiTs), both of which came into force on 1st August 2011. Read the articles for our views and to hear about the campaigning and lobbying we’ve been instigating as we, the solar industry, face these very challenging times.
The Solar Handbook will provide people working at all levels with the confidence they need to contact the right people for the job with a full directory of STA members included. It is vital that we all continue working together for the future and that we use this opportunity to focus on building the foundations needed to support future growth.
