What is the difference between an Energie Solar Panel System and Solar Tubes or Plates?
Unlike traditional solar panels (tubes and flat plates) the Energie system offers:
No unnecessary annual maintenance checks. In order to maintain the maximum efficiency of tubes and plates they must be serviced annually.
LVP panels are lightweight (weighing only 8kg) and roof structures do not need to be reinforced. Conventional solar panels are heavy-weighing anything from 40-300kg
Energie Solar Panels absorb heat from both sides unlike traditional panels which only capture radiation on one side
One Energie panel (80cmx200cm) will provide a family of up to 6 people with all of their hot water needs. With traditional solar a large amount of panels is needed to provide similar quantities of water
Energie panels need no back up from oil or gas. Other solar panels need an auxiliary energy source when the sun isn’t shining or when in high demand
