SOLAR THERMAL SYSTEMS
Solar thermal technologies convert solar energy (or radiation or light) into thermal (heat) energy. They are typically Solar Hot Water (SHW) or Domestic Hot Water (DHW) systems.
A solar hot water (SHW) system looks similar to a solar photovoltaic (PV) system. However, a solar PV system uses sunlight to generate electricity, while a SHW system uses sunlight to heat water and space
