Solar Thermal Installations Ireland.Solar hot water panels go onto the roof of the home, and a solar hot water storage tank is installed. The solar panels collect solar energy from the suns rays. So Solar energy comes from the solar panels on the roof. It is then sent to a coil at the bottom of the solar hot water tank. This heats the water in the tank, and provides the hot water for the house. This system is know as solar hot water heating.
