Two Different Categories
There are two fundamentally different technologies available to deliver you cheap solar hot water. On-the-roof systems, and heat pumps.
1. On-The-Roof Solar Hot Water Systems.
These systems have collectors on the roof to collect the radiant heat of the sun. They include the traditional flat-plate collectors that have been around for 40 years, and the more advanced evacuated tube systems (which have been on the market since 1980!).
Doing our due diligence in 2004, we decided that evacuated tubes were clearly the better system, choosing what has since become the Hills Esteem range. We helped pioneer their widespread adoption, and today are the largest Hills Solar Dealer in Australia.

2. Heat Pump Solar Hot Water Systems.
The second solar hot water technology is the heat pump. They have been on the Australian market for over 20 years- a well-kept secret from most Australians!
A heat pump solar hot water system is very clever. Just like a reverse-cycle air conditioner heating a room in winter, they use a little bit of electricity to collect a lot of heat that the sun has put into the atmsphere.
They produce similar savings to most on-the-roof systems, but are cheaper to instal because nothing has to be installed on the roof. The connections are the same as an old-style elecric storage hot water system.
Of course, they are recognised by all Australian Governments for solar hot water rebates. A few lucky people who qualify for maximum rebates can end up paying less than they would for a bottom-end elctrical hot water system.
